It's, Um, A Kind of Cake?
Ah, school projects have begun! I'm so grateful for these days where school projects are fun and involve twigs and quality time with Daddy on the back porch. Andrew's class has been studying Abraham Lincoln, so they were given the assignment to build a log cabin from the materials of their choosing. Andrew, my literal and straight-laced boy, naturally chose sticks. He cared nothing for embellishment, but enjoyed using the hot glue gun tremendously and followed the log-laying pattern precisely. I'm trying to imagine what Elsbeth will do when it's her turn. A Twizzler cabin with glitter marshmallow chimneys surrounded by dragon-laden forests perhaps?
Confession: I am a productive procrastinator. I'm probably the best that I know. This means that when there are jobs to be done that I don't want to do (which is always), I find other things to do that are lovely and way more fun and often create more jobs I don't want to do. My latest distraction is making bread.
