Reading Valentines 
Happy Valentine's Day

Thank you, Joan for making us delicious smoothies for our Valentine snack and providing us the recipe. 

Cherry-Banana Smoothie

1 cup tart cherry juice
1 cup vanilla soy milk (can substitute dairy or other).
1 banana
½ to 1 cup frozen tart and sweet cherries (purchased at Kroger, combined in one bag)
A scoop of vanilla soy yogurt or vanilla soy ice cream (can substitute dairy or other)
Put all the ingredients in the blender and puree.
Keep cold or serve immediately.
I have no idea how many calories are in this or what the nutritional values are.

Here is the original recipe I based this on, mine is very close but slightly modified.

Kelsey took us on our "Winter Nature Walk" in County Farm Park.  The children used a compass to help navigate their way through a scavenger hunt.  They found riddles about nature that they had to answer along their way through the park.

Ice skating with friends at Buhr Park Rink is a wonderful February tradition. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
