Preparing for the First Day

With an nerve-rattling earthquake just a couple days behind us, we now find ourselves securing lawn furniture and buying new batteries as Hurricane Irene approaches. I could really do without all this excitement.

We also prepare backpacks, wash uniforms, and calm nerves... about school, earthquakes, and hurricanes! The First Day of School is scheduled for Monday. We'll see if Irene messes with that.

I plan to make this pencil cake for a special dessert on their First Day. I made it the first day of homeschool (3 years ago) and they still talk about it. The recipe can be found here.

My cuties that same year... they are so little!!

Hope you have a calm, dry, full-of-electricity weekend!


  1. I remember it, too! I can't believe I've "known" you that long. :)

  2. Hi Jenn,

    I've discovered your great blog via facebook! What a find! You should see my pencil cake that I was inspired to make by your being inspired! An okay success until it came to the writing....I'll show you a pix sometime. I tried to use a ziplock bag to do the lettering and it turned the yellow pencil a nice shade of brown smudge. A mess. But still a tasty first day of school treat. Nancy
