For the last several months, my kiddos have been taking a class called 'Books and Cooks' every Monday. The teacher reads a story and then the class makes some kind of snack or treat that goes along with the story. They absolutely love this class.
And I fully admit that as a food blogger (with an education degree to boot) it is odd to send my kids to a class where they will essentially be doing just what we do at home everyday. Read and cook. But they love to read and cook, and I want them to continue to love both. And if it means letting them expand their horizons a bit in the kitchen with someone other than Mommy, then that is going to be worth it.
Plus, with the Buddy starting Kindergarten in the Fall, there is less and less time for the two of them to do things together during the week. And as they tell me on a daily basis, they're 'best friends'. It makes my heart squeeze every single time one of them says it.
