Our First Cake!
We've officially made and decorated our first cake! This is going to take A LOT more practice that I really expected. LOL! It is fun...just a lot of hard work, and time consuming. Megan and I went to Michael's and picked out some colors and really didn't have a plan as to what we were going to create. So that's why it's a blue cake, with pink and purple. We have a plan for the next one though. Keep your eye out here for it! Megan is loving this. It's been enjoyable for me to see her enjoy it and have more patience than me! I thought she would be a bit disappointed in how it turned out, but she was really proud of it!
I'm Carolyn. I'm the 3rd oldest of 11 kids, the 1st adopted of 8, and the oldest girl of 4. I live in Northeast Tennessee with my 3 kids, husband Andy, and dog Max. I turn 40 in August right after my first grandchild is born!
I "unschool" my kids and love EVERY minute of it! What does this mean? For us, this means that I let my kids learn about what they are interested in, when they are interested in doing so...be it History, Science, Reading, or whatever! The only exception is Math. I loosely follow a Math curriculum with them the closer they get to high school and Charlie LOVES Math and so at 4 years old, he's doing it all the time anyway.
