Scott gave Conner a lesson in "mowing the lawn" on Saturday. When I looked out the window and saw this I thought, my goodness is he really old enough?! He did great. There was a moment of frustration, but we just sat and watched from the patio and he eventually figured it out. It looks like this will be his chore this summer.
Anna and I donned our aprons and made cookies. This was her very first time baking with mom. As you can see, she was pretty excited about it. She was very helpful and wanted to be involved in every part of it. And I'm happy to report that there were no melt-downs -- for either of us. :) She is a strong-willed little girl and we tend to butt heads. But this ended up being a very pleasant experience. We'll have to do it more often!
And I just have to show off the pony tail we were able to pull together that day. And I promise I moved her away from the oven right away. I just couldn't resist that expression and her reflection in the glass.
