CAM Cookies - Week of Apr. 1st
“Think what a better world it would be if we all...the whole world...had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess. And it is still true, no matter how old you are-when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.”
~ Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
Cameron certainly started his spring break out right by making cookies with Katherine! She found a recipe for cookie cutter type chocolate chip treats. Emma was a big help rolling out the dough and assisting Cam with the letter cutouts (thanks to Auntie Jo for the letters!) and of course, taste testing.
Since Emma was on spring break too, she and Cam had time for reading, playing, and eating. The buddies giggled over the Alphabet Adventure book and seeing Cam's pic on every page.
To keep this spring breaker busy, Katherine helped him work on his Alphabet book, coloring and practicing his words.
A special treat this weekend was a visit from Ms. Karen, who drove up from Chicago! She brought Cam some of his favorite books and yummy cookie treats!! Jane's treat was spending time with such a great, sweet friend and shopping with Karen and Cameron...for some reason, Chris opted out of that adventure.
The weekend ended with a big adventure indeed- the discovery of The Time Capsule!! If you are an avid blog reader, you may recall the capsule was buried a few weeks ago. Although the authors of the capsule note had some expectation of a delayed discovery, Emma and Cam had other plans...
