A Little Food, A Little Music..

Okay..class one done! I set up the "Something is wrong here" kitchen. Hazards and a general mess everywhere. I gave the kids 1 minute to look around and write down all the hazards they could see. We discussed proper kitchen safety and food handling. I have ended up with mostly ages 8-10. Not what I thought I would have but we'll make it work.

Next week we begin cooking. We are going to make breakfast. Eggs and pancakes, maybe some french toast. I am going to work on the menu and ingredient/supply list today.

On another note, I am so excited. My oldest son is having his first guitar lesson as we speak. This wonderful man from church has agreed to take time out and come and teach him a thing or two. It's good for two reasons. One, he's learning guitar, but more importantly, he's learning to interact with another adult on a personal level. This is not easy for him. He's having to think about what he wants out of playing the guitar and ask himself questions like "why do I want to learn this?" It sounds like a no brainer...but he's not used to doing that. He has always just sort of done what we told him to do. Am I making sense? I guess it's hard to explain. I am just thrilled that he has this opportunity.

Plus, Mr. C brought me a Guamanian cookbook to peruse and make some copies of. I can't wait to get to it.

Have a great day and thanks so much for your words of encouragement with this class of mine!

Blessings all around to you!

Okay, didn't I tell you you'd be great? Call me when you get a chance - sorry I missed your call earlier - I was at the chapel setting up dates and then went to the commissary in.the.rain. :(
