This is school week around here. All the little angels are heading back to school. Side by side they go, lunch pails in hand, backpacks stuffed to overflowing, new shoes, new haircuts... anxious to see their friends, nerveous to meet their teacher... Brothers & Sisters... off they go... (Oh yes, isn't that the most delicious cherub painting!!! It's 45" wide! I WANT it! Clickty click over to ebay and have a see.)
So when life gives us mud pies, make a cake! In fact, make lots of cakes. Decorate them with pink roses and put them on pretty plates (that sweet cake server is also on ebay). Even sibling mud pies that land right in your hair are part of the troubles of life that help us learn to play well with others.
