And so another school year ends. Miranda and her shiny boots will face third grade next semester, her brother will face his own new challenges, Mom will face coming up with new school hairstyles. and I will face-palm most of the time due to all of their ridiculous but funny behavior.
It’s been a great year with excellent grades and lots of new hand-clapping rapping songs. At one point I was actually pretty good at them and could hold my own in the playground. We’ll take in a homemade New York cheesecake for the teacher (she’s from NY, yikes) and bid our farewells when the final buzzer sounds. I always like to see the kids come flying out of the classrooms on the last day…they’re like bats leaving the cave at night!
I always make sure to put some kind of berry in Mir’s lunch pail. My kids eat berries by the pack and blackberries are really good right now. Although she didn’t get this crumble for lunch – mom and I demolished it after the kids went to bed – it did inspire me at 6:30 a.m. while packing her blackberries. I was really pleased with the thyme flavor and I urge you to try throwing in some fresh herbs to a sweet dish sometime please! I could easily say this is the best crumble I have everrrr tasted (horn toots here)
