Happy Pi Day

Happy Pi Day to all the math whiz kids out there.

According to the Pi Day official website
(No, I'm not making that site up)

"Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159."

(Stay awake, non -math people, because the Pi folks gleefully add: 

"Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point...
Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits."

I don't think the Pi folks are pulling our legs. They're that giddy over Pi.

In our home we're giddy over pie. Yep, pi with an "e" on the end.

This year we celebrated Pi Day with our 2nd annual Pi Day Pie Eating Contest.

And for the 2nd year in a row, my grandson wiped the floor with me.
His pie eating skills are a family phenomenon.

So go out and celebrate Pi as the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle.
Or bag a bargain on pies--fruit, pizza, and so forth.

This is the day the Lord has made.We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 NLT

Hopefully with pie.
