Our weekend began with some baseball, of course. Mr. G came home after playing 3 games and practiced hitting baseballs. There's no evident limit on how much baseball that kid can take.
Then we got ready for company. There was lemonade, but people drank much more beer and Squirt. All the kids played together wonderfully--from age 7 to age 15. We're so lucky to have fun friends. At one point I was doubled over laughing.
Our favorite dessert this summer is Susan's Lemon Cake. It's from The Cake Doctor Cookbook which I cannot recommend highly enough. Served up on a proper cake stand with the cake cover from my Grandma, of course.
Aside from tasting tart and sweet, it also looks pretty because it's a Bundt Cake and turns out looking perfect every single time.
Well, now that I wrote "Bundt" this seems necessary:
It's daisy season.
On a happy note, my Sunday morning Preschool students at church are doing much better. Oh! The! Stories! I could tell you. Our classroom stats are much improved from a couple weeks ago:
0 tears shed
4 climbers on tables
1 request for bathroom assistance
2 refusals to participate
16 chalk pictures of happy faces on the sidewalk outside
1 story about a unicorn named "Twilight Sparkle" (???)
I spent a lazy Sunday afternoon playing Cribbage with Mr. T. before swimming laps.
Life is so good. Spill it, reader. What were your weekend highlights?
