π Day

Today is one of the favored days among young nerds at the boys' school,
 π Day
Since π is approximately 3.14, they like to celebrate it on 3/14.  Today being Sunday, though, Scoot's class will observe the occasion tomorrow by doing circular math, reciting digits of π from memory, eating pizza pies and sweet pies.  Scoot decided to contribute a coconut cream pie, and he fixed it this afternoon.

But why let them have all the fun?  We have plenty of nerds in our own household.  We are sufficiently nerdy to know that the Greeks pronounce π the same way we pronounce P, but we like pie anyway.  So we had a shepherd's pie for dinner...
and an apple pie for dessert.

And we didn't bother to measure the pies' areas, circumferences, nor volumes.  But we all agree that they were delicious!
