We've needed to just relax and enjoy this week of family celebrations and simple time together with my visiting parents. My mother and I were able to do a little sewing together. I watched her as she hand stitched the binding onto the Eucharist table runner in one day. I had the runner ready to go for her and she willingly sat on the couch and stitched. The children would wander through the den and sit to chat with her. She was able to help me and catch up with them - a total win win!
This week, Mr. Neoclassic and I treated each of the older children to a parent-approved-skip-day. Jazz chose to show her grandparents her favorite gallery, then allow them to shop with her and treat her to lunch. The boys will be leaving with them tomorrow for a short weekend trip to Maryland. They are packed, ready and willing to go to bed on time just to wake up and travel with Nana and Papa.
this recipe from King Arthur Flour and highly recommend it for any other Celiac's out there. Just ignore the number of eggs in the recipe. What you don't acknowledge can't hurt you, right?
