Yesterday Evan went to the zoo with a friend. You would've thought my oldest, Grace, had her limbs removed one by one.
All I heard was, I'm so bored, what do I do? Are you SERIOUS? When your brother is here, you fight like cats and dogs!
So, after some of my chores were finished, we decided to make cookies. The jar on the counter, according to her, was empty, and it was time to make more.
I usually always have the jar filled with some kind of cookies. When school rolls around, I slip one into their lunch when I can. However, this summer, it's been store bought ones, crazy logic, I know, I should have more time in the summer to make them, but I just find it's not a priority like it is during the school year.
So, we baked cookies. Butterscotch/chocolate chips cookies to be exact, because that's the kind of chips I had in the cupboard.
It's ridiculous, though, what preparation you have to do to actually get READY to make the cookies.
I should just go ahead and premake a bunch of cookie mixes and put them in the cupboard so all I have to do is add the wet ingredients. (3 more days till school starts....we'll see!)
Grace is looking down to see the big lump of brown sugar she let drop on the floor. Great!
It cured the boredom for awhile...at least.
