I pulled out some ABC flashcards the other day just to get an assessment of what Jubilee knew so that I could make sure I give her activities that are challenging, but not too frustrating. She totally surprised me with both her knowledge and enthusiasm for flash cards. We worked on them for a week and she knows most of them now. I also pulled out an alphabet poster that she use a dry erase marker on. She requested to do this 3 times today! (It was rainy, and I had quite a bit of baking to do. She kept herself quite busy inside!!)
I made cakes for a marriage seminar that a friend of ours is running, and I tried out a new technique- flowers! I hadn't attempted a big rose out of icing before, but I liked the results- what do you think?
