proud

I was away last week for a long weekend at a conference. As usual, I made a couple of calls home while I was away, checking in with everyone, but I didn't really get a chance to talk to Nick after the first night. So when I was delayed on Sunday, hanging around in the Minneapolis airport for more hours than I'd planned, I took the chance to chat with him again, knowing he'd already be sleeping when I returned home. He'd taken a tae kwon do test and finished up a science project over the weekend, so I expected to hear lots about all that. Instead I heard this--

"Mommy! Saturday morning, I made cranberry muffins from the Joy of Cooking! All by myself! They were really good and really easy."

Words to warm a mother's heart.

Fantastic! Would he be game to do an encore sometime during this weekend? I know he'd have an appreciative audience....

Love,

Mom/Grandma Peg

The baker in our family (Cullen) has lost his sweet tooth! Alas! I am really missing the scratch brownies he was into for a time...

Neat!

And can I just say how excited I am that tomorrow I will be in the US and will be able to make some cranberry muffins of my own? I love all things cranberry, and here they are only available dried...
