Anna is in the kitchen
When ordering Anna's books last fall, I bought "Tea and Cake with the Saints". We had not even looked at it until yesterday, when it caught Anna's eye on the shelf. It sparked an interest in her to cook something for us, but I had a busy day and kept putting off her requests to make a treat.
As I finished up in the kitchen last night, I noticed that Anna had laid open the book to a recipe that she wanted to make for us this morning for breakfast. I smiled at her sweet enthusiasm. This morning, among the chaos that is our family, she and I worked around all that and I gently guided her as she put some of this and a little of that in the bowl. She did a wonderful job and breakfast was "scrumptious" as Jack likes to say.
