Look at those droopy little eyes–we are so not morning people. We get up early but are not functional till after 8:30am …
This photo was taken before school on the morning of C’s big Betsy Ross presentation. They all had to choose a famous American to research and do a speech about. C choose Betsy Ross because well…she must be his great great great great grandmother of course.. after-all we have the same last name. It made him really excited to do the research so I went along with his assumption. He had to bring a prop for his presentation and I suggested that I could help him sew his own flag, but like most boys and men it was only a good prop if it included food C mixed the cake batter himself (spice cake, his pick) I baked it and he rolled out and cut the fondant himself. I did the assembly (icing the cake with cream cheese frosting then applying the fondant).
There were lots of oohs and aahs from his classmates and C had a big proud grin on his face..totally worth it!
Oh yeah his speech was great too. I was very proud of him. The video is hard to hear. All the kids were were stationed around the room and the parents rotated from student to student. All those speeches going on at once made for tough video recording, but the bit at the beginning where he reveals his cake needs no audio …the look on his face was amazing!
