When my kids get into something...they get INTO it.
Like, our whole basement has basically been converted into a Lego war zone. And my daughter, obsessed with princesses, never lets a day pass without putting on her Cinderella dress...or at the very least, petting it like a cat and cuddling it.
So when my eldest discovered that the local library was housing a Star Wars cookbook (another obsession), he was hooked. To cooking, that is.
The cookbook was great.
It had all kind of yummy foods with clever names, like Storm Trooper Smoothies or Yoda Soda.
He made us all breakfast one day.
These are Princess Laia Buns. Get it?
I thought it was pretty clever.
He wants to own this cookbook.
He's been making lists and planning menus.
I love it :)
In my last post, I mentioned it's the time of year to sum everything up.
That happened last week in piano.
Noah's been practicing all year and has been playing better and better,
so Friday night we got to see all the kids show their stuff.
They had their show in a local coffee house, which was a really cool place to have a recital.
(My kid, taking pictures of other kids she doesn't know.)
I'm so proud of this boy.
He's getting so big and growing so much.
He did great at his recital, introducing himself to the audience, playing The Mickey Mouse March and Tchaikovsky...chords and all.
He makes Mama proud :)
On the way home, Noah mentioned he wanted to try playing some Jack Johnson songs.
I'm all for this. How fun would that be?!
Plus it gives me an excuse to put in another Amazon order...any excuse to buy a book, and I'm game.
I read once that when your child has a strong interest in something, you should help fuel that interest and help them learn more.
I think that sounds good...cookbooks and Jack Johnson song books.
I can help you out, N.
This was our little gift for Noah's teacher.
Idea compliments of Eighteen25 (I love those girls over there).
Jack took my camera a snapped a few shots.
I think he was using the rule of thirds here...what do you think?
And check our Ms. Piano Teacher...so gorgeous and so so sweet.
I love that she's Noah's teacher.
She's so kind and encouraging.
xo Jen :)
I may have several more of the end-of-year posts for you.
I hope you don't mind my virtual scrapbook.
We're getting ready for another busy day...and Mama's getting ready to hit the road!
Have a great Thursday, my friends!
