Cooking with Joshua

Joshua and I started up with school last week. He and I will have the afternoons to work together while Micah naps. We've started a primer for Explode the Code, which works on letter recognition and eventually builds up to reading. We're going to read lots of books together, work on projects, and cook. This afternoon, we decided to make Rocky Cookies for Neil, which are some of his favorites, and on the healthy side for a cookie. Joshua helped measure out the ingredients, mix it all together, and roll the dough into balls on the cookie sheet. And, of course, after the cookies were done, we ATE some! Delicious. Joshua is sporting the latest of my sewing creations, a speedy car apron. The fabric was his choice. I'm sure that it will get used for much more than just cooking, as we have painting projects on the horizon! What a wonderful boy!

You know, I was pregnant with Neil when we went to see (the first!) Rocky. Ron got all excited about running and I would walk our dog in the park near our house while he jogged. (without a headset- they didn't have them in those days...) But I digress!
M-m-m-m-m, Joshua those cookies look yummy! When you come to Grammy's house at Christmas we'll have to make cookies- so bring your apron!

Those boys are so super cute! I just wished we lived closer and could come over to play!
