Today is a day of end of schoolterm parties for Big S and Little S.
For Little S, it’s the last day before she heads to a half-day drop off program at her school next year. She loves this class, which provides a warm, nurturing environment. Something that I try to do, too! She also gets to hear Mandarin pronounced correctly. It was in this class that we discovered her 2 loves in a short matter of time 1) food and 2) crafts – both to be created, consumed and enjoyed with 2 chubby hands.
Incidentally, I’ve found that throwing yourself into baking can prevent oneself from sobbing uncontrollably at how big your kids are getting.
Little S loves being arty with her food, so I made milk & honey gelatin animals. Spencer recently revealed to us that his favorite flavor is coconut, so I made macaroons. This week, the students are learning the “ch” sound, so I figured why not throw in some chocolate. So here are the recipes, here and here.
