Keepers at Home


Twice a month, Addy and I attend Keepers at Home meetings where we get together with other home school girls to learn homemaking skills and Biblical character skills. This month, we are learning gentleness and baking. This particular week, the girls learned how to make pies. Addy just eats this stuff up...no pun intended (yeah, right)


Start with a prayer



Lots of questions



it's a hands-on experience



oh yeah, the butter...



The look of concentration



The Masterpiece



...and the topper of the night...remember how I said they were learning gentleness? Well, right after this moment I dumped Addy's pie on the floor...some things never change, right Mom?

Good job, Addy! Your pie looks scrumdidlyumptious!

Mandi, I laughed quite heretically about you dumping her pie on the floor...sometimes you just exude gracefulness!

Mandi said...

Yes, I laugh at myself quite often, too.

Really, though, it was so sad. She laughed about it, but I could tell she was holding back tears. Tears that she would have shed, had she dropped it herself.
