special Exposure Wednesday- in the Rockies and Doing it Yourself
Note that in this picture, my mom is waiting patiently while Ricki manages her bottle of drink herself. Now this does not mean that Ricki didn't request that WE give her a drink. She did, and we refused.
Ricki came home from "cooking" class with a cake yesterday.
"Who sifted the flour?
"Who added the ingredients?"
"Who stirred the batter?"
Now, it may be vital that for the first few lessons, that a teacher explain a technique. Or perhaps to give the girls some pre-holiday activity the school elected that they see a honey cake being made. But my mind flashes back to my visit to the school half a year ago, and my noticing then that in the cooking class, only the teacher had a rolling pin. Ricki is pretty good at following a well-written recipe. I hope that today's cake made by the teacher (IF Ricki is to be believed) is not a harbinger of things to come.....
