Once a week Ethan attends a Home Economics Class. He LOVES it! They've practice knife skills, dish washing, table setting and cooking. He's made many different dishes to share with our family and this cake is what he made this week! It was fantastic. Expertly decorated and yummy to boot!
Go Home Economics! Boys in the kitchen! I love it!
Well, we have been having too much fun to be inside on the computer. Sorry for the delay in posting! We've had more visitors from the US. Scott's boss and his wife visited for a few nights of meetings, dinners and sightseeing. Then I attended an all day charity luncheon with a group of Glasgow friends. Our weekend was filled with rugby and squash and then this week our Dallas neighbors, Rick and Terri Hawkins came for a quick visit. We had beautiful weather and so we toured around, ate tons and enjoyed the spa and golf at Gleneagles on Wednesday. (I think I could move there!) We were having so much fun that I forgot my camera have no pics. Hopefully Terri will send me some.
Halloween snuck up on us this year. We managed to carve our pumpkins the night before Halloween. The boys were excited and we attended the neighborhood party again. Fun to see some of the neighbors that we've not seen in a long time and catch up with those we don't get enough time with. We were filled with sugar and more sugar from the word go! (notice Charlie never took off his costume the next day!)
Ethan is Skulduggery Pleasant (a character from a book he's read), Christopher was a "skater dude" and Charlie was Lightening McQueen's Pit Crew (again!). Ethan's friend Owen (not sure what his costume was??) spent the night and joined us for the trick or treating and party. No pictures from that night but I managed to get them back into costume the next morning for a quick photo!
Yesterday we took the boys mountain biking on some trails 30 minutes from here. It was cold but dry and Charlie and I waited in the car so he could nap. Boys had a blast. We continue to enjoy the great outdoors!
