Well, I know you've all been sitting on the edge of your seats wondering if my date-nut muffins came third-out-of-three again at the town fair (they did!), so here's the lowdown.
What I was most thrilled about was how Firstborn did at the fair this year. He always makes a lego creation, and this year he moved into a higher age category, so I was a little worried he'd be outclassed by the big kids. But for the second year in a row he took first place! He also came first in the Fleischmann's yeast bread baking contest, which he was so excited about because the loaf he entered was his very first attempt at bread-baking ever. Check out that ribbon! Now, when I ask him to clean his room, he looks down his nose and reminds me that I am speaking to an award-winning baker.
We all knew the town fair was going to create a monster, but who'd have guessed it wouldn't be me?
