grade card pie


One night when the twins were in 1st grade, I made chocolate pudding pie for dessert.  It was not planned, but it happened to fall on the night they brought home their first report card from school.  We asked them the same thing we ask them each time... "are you proud of this?"  "did you try your hardest?".  They both were very proud and had worked hard, so we called the pie "grade card pie" that night to celebrate.  The next 9 weeks came and went and when they knew it was getting close to report card time, they both asked if they got grade card pie... so the tradition began.  Tonight was grade card pie at our house, the only thing that has changed is that we now have three kids - well we have 2 teenagers and one inching very close to that - so we need 2 grade card pies, one chocolate and one butterscotch.  In case you're curious - we have celebrated with grade card pie 38 times.... so far!

  1. Great idea! I love that you share your traditions on here because I'm going to (or already have) adopt a few! We're already saying your prayer at meal times and my heart melts just a little every time Maryn yells out "Gether" at the end!
