Care for a cookie? Or two?


Would you like one big cookie? Or would you prefer two smaller ones?

I baked these multigrain raisin cookies for my Sunday School kids. We will be crossing the Red Sea tomorrow with Moses, and there is a celebration on the other side with tambourines and singing. Although not Biblical, I’m sure they had cookies!

Time to celebrate

Today I shipped the last 8 pages of the yearbook. We are done, and it is time to celebrate. My yearbook class has been great this year. Not only have we not lost any production time, but the whole book got turned in a day before the final deadline set by the printer. They’ve done some pretty good layouts, too.

Not only do my students get graded for their deadlines, we celebrate in other ways too. It’s pretty much always with food, and this final deadline is no exception. I will order Chinese food for the class at my favorite Chinese restaurant, my wonderful husband will pick it up and deliver it to school one day next week, and we will feast and tell ourselves how great we are.

I am a big believer in celebrating accomplishments of all kinds. Because all of my students were in attendance for the CaHSEE, we will have a pizza party to reward them. Last year, when we got the CaHSEE scores back, and almost everyone of the kids passed, we took them out to breakfast at a small restaurant that had just opened across the street from the school. My students don’t get a lot of pats on the back, so I figure any time I can say, “job well done,” I will do so.
