Earth Day is a worldwide celebration held annually on April 22 to garner support for environmental protection. Celebrate the Earth with a simple but fun Earth Day paper plate collage that reinforces cutting and gluing skills.

I love baking and especially enjoy baking cookies. I have also recently been experimenting with using unsweetened applesauce in my cookie recipes to lower the sugar content. During the holidays, I love making thumbprint cookies and peanut butter Kiss cookies. Last weekend I combined parts of the two recipes to make some delicious peanut butter and jelly cookies that my family absolutely loved. Plus, instead of white sugar, I used unsweetened applesauce to lower the sugar content of the entire batch by almost a third!

I love baking sugar cookies for the different holidays throughout the year. However, I do try to limit the amount of sugar that my family consumes, and my classic sugar cookies have a whopping 200 grams of sugar per batch. I recently swapped out the full cup of white sugar for 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce. The modified recipe is pretty close to the classic but contains only about 90 grams of sugar per batch.

Adverb clauses function only as adjunct adverbials in English.

In addition to the second person singular and plural familiar and informal imperatives, the Spanish language also uses a fifth imperative form: first person plural nosostros "we." The nosotros imperative roughly translates to let's in English.

Unlike in English, Spanish commands have both informal and formal forms. Formal forms address Usted and Ustedes.

The imperative mood allows speakers of Spanish to make direct commands, to express requests, and to grant or deny permission.

If you are searching for a book that instills a message about bravery and sticking up for oneself, I highly recommend checking out Sweet Penny and the Lion from Richard Fairgray and Alexander Burke. My six-year-old can easily read the rhymed text, and my two younger children enjoy hearing me read the wickedly funny book aloud. The illustrations likewise bring the story to life with a style that fits the text. I especially like the message of the story, which encourages kids to be bold and be brave. My kiddos and I give Sweet Penny and the Lion many thumbs up!

Did you dress your baby in tights? How do you feel about tights for boys?
