Have you ever ironed and baked sugar cookies?

Yesterday we went to visit Nana and Papa. They just returned from a 2 week cruise to Alaska! The kids were greeted by Nana, Papa, Aunt T, 3 dogs, 3 cats, and lots of butterflies. Nana said that she's never seen so many butterflies on her butterfly bushes, and the butterflies must have known that the kids were coming!

This morning at church our boy went down for Children's Time during the service. The lady leading the service asked all the kids..."Are you sad that summer is coming to an end?" Then she asked if anyone had traveled far away this summer. The first child who answered responded that she had been to Paris. Then our boy raised his hand saying, "I went all the way up to Florida!" :) Good thing it wasn't our girl who said it because she would have been sooooo mad when everyone laughed! It didn't phase our boy.

This afternoon was busy with activities for the first day of school tomorrow. I made hand print cookies with Hershey's kisses on them for 54 Kindergarten students for tomorrow. In class, we read the story The Kissing Hand. The day ends with the cookie snack reminding the students of the kiss Chester's mother puts in his hand. So...while I'm baking (thinking why did I want to roll and bake 54 cookies?), I was also running back and forth to iron our boy's school clothes for the week. Have you ever tried to iron navy clothes with flour on your own clothes from cookie baking? Let's just say that it's not a good idea!
