Brought to you by the Letter "Q"

Like many schools, Maddy's class has a letter of the week. This week is brought to you by the letter "Q" as in queen, quiet, quilt, quack and so on. And, like many schools, ours depends on parents for snacks at times throughout the year. So, this week it's our turn to bring snacks. When I asked Mad what we should take, she responded, "anything as long as it starts with the letter Q"! Yikes -- I swear I was awake half the night trying to think of Q snacks and the only Q words I could even come up with are those listed above! Who can think of a snack beginning with the letter Q????

But, I finally figured something out -- we took "Quail Mix" -- a kind of derivative of trail mix! Whew -- what a relief! Bonus -- Maddy's teacher, Mrs. P, is giving me a star for coming up with a snack that begins with the letter Q!! Here's what you need to make your own Quail Mix: popcorn, sunflower seeds, raisins and M&*Ms -- everything quail (and first-graders) love to eat!

Now thats creative! We'll have to try it!

I remember a loong time ago when my son's class had a Q wedding. It was united with the letter U forever. His teacher had it set up just like a real wedding with invitations, a ceramony and reception to follow. I'll never forget it. Most of all the kids sure learned that every word starting with Q then followed with U.

Hope you have a great weekend!
