The weather has dropped into the middle 40's at night and we're loving the cooler temperatures! We made a campfire last evening and toasted marshmallows. And of course devoured s'mores! Even Elle was begging for graham crackers and marshmallows (though she only had one). I think having family time like this is so important-- laughing and sharing stories. Especially during the teenage years when the kids are starting to do things on their own. They both went to the High School Football Game with friends on Friday night and had a blast. Now we're considering getting a camper in another year so we can make some more good memories before they grow up and are gone!
One more thing... I had a leek left so I snuck it into homemade macaroni and cheese and they loved it. They never knew it was in there! And I just baked homemade chocolate chip cookies...yum. I think cooking and baking from scratch for your kids is one of the best things a parent can do. Of course they may never leave home at this rate! Hope you are having a good weekend too!
