[For honesty’s sake, this was a little sunshine on an otherwise difficult and frustrating day.]
I thought the above picture a little funny with the bus driving by, and all.
The motor bike is Leif’s usual choice of recess activity. His and Luke’s. Down the driveway, back up, into the yard, up the hill, around the trees, and back down again. Sometimes around the house. Today was beautiful, so he spent quite a bit of time out there. Yes, he’s wearing gloves. No, it wasn’t that cold.
I posted a super short video of him riding over on Facebook.
In the afternoon, Luke grabbed a cookbook off the shelf, read through it, picked a recipe, and asked if he could make oatmeal craisin cookies. I decided he could do it completely on his own, and he did—with a little help from Leif and Lola. I’m trying to eat healthy and I don’t even like oatmeal cookies, but the aroma was so delicious I had to try one. He gets an A+ for this independent project, and I think I’ll let him do more baking from now on!
