The boys had their now annual cookie exchange with their book group this week. We've been a part of a homeschool group that gathers monthly to discuss books for a couple of years now. Unfortunately, our participation varies with the season and sports commitments. But it has been a great experience for both boys, and has nudged them toward books that they might have been reluctant to read if they weren't going to get to discuss them with their friends.
And in addition to reading and discussing books, they have a fun event once a month. This month - holiday cookie exchange! I didn't get to go, but did get to help (read I made) cookies for them to take and we all pitched in on decorating. (I might have quoted the The Little Red Hen story when someone was less than eager to help at one point...) Not masterpieces, our cookies, but homemade. And we're still enjoying the cookies they brought home.
