Unlike her mama, this kiddo LOVES to wash dishes. I’m pretty reliant on the dishwasher and rarely wash any dishes, but we have a set of plastic plates that I’ll get out for her to wash when she requests this activity. She had fun and this kept her busy for a while.

I hold a middle and high school book club once a month at our co-op, and this month we read Anne of Green Gables. Anne of Green Gables is a long time favorite in our house with O starting to listen to the audiobook when she was Ada’s age. Somehow, this was my first time listening to the whole book, and we all loved it. Since Ada also listened to and LOVED the book, I let her join the book club. And, of course, she had to dress up as Anne.
At our book club, we had fancy teacups and saucers, and we served lemonade and (fake) raspberry cordial. Ella made a butter cake with cream cheese icing and strawberries, and Ada made sugar cookies. As we ate, we discussed the book, rolled literature question dice, and played charades. It was a fun and simple book club meeting.
Last month we read The Outsiders and next month, we are reading Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief. We like variety!

I was looking through old posts and saw that this one has more than 82,000 hits. I don’t have a clue why it was so popular, but I think I’ll put this on my to for list to do again! 🤣
We’re continuing our tradition of making a king cake, and it’s so good! We use a box mix and there are a lot of steps, but it’s worth it. Ada and I did the first part, and the older girls did the rest. Then we all decorated it together. Ada got the baby in her piece, but I’m pretty sure it was rigged 🤣❤️
