Anyway, back to last week's bash. Since Monday was President's Day, my nieces and nephews were out of school. My kids weren't quite so lucky; they still had to complete their schoolwork. It was all okay, though, because they still had time to play with their cousins.
I have a niece and nephew that had some 4-H baking contests approaching. It has become a tradition that I help them try out recipes (which I love...and not just because I get to sample), so they came over to my house. I helped them bake cookies and a cake, while my sister helped my children with their school. How cool is that! This homeschooling mama appreciates substitute teachers! I forgot to take a picture of the cookies, but I did take one of the cake - well, part of the cake. Yum!
