Rainbow Cake...first go around...

Madison and Matthew Ray's birthday (and mine) is in just a few weeks. I have talked them into ONE MORE (maybe) joint party. So, I was trying to decide on what kind of cake to make this year. When I came across this I just had to try it. Well, this is my first attempt..hmmm...It tastes great..but needs a little work on the appearance for sure! It will help when I get some really cool food coloring from the states. It's a good thing I have more time to practice...I guess my family and friends will be having lots of cake for a few weeks...birthdays...gotta love 'em!

What have we been doing???

It's been a while since I have blogged but I have a really good reason....I promise! All schools here were closed for a couple of weeks due to the "most recent" flu going around the world. So, our school decided to send all of the school work home for the parents to homeschool their children during this "time off" to keep us from extending the year into the summer.
The kids did a great job and we worked day and night on all of their assignments...but I am TIRED...whew..that was A LOT! 3 different kids at 3 very different levels...let's just say I am EXTREMELY thankful for our school here and how it ministers to our family.
Here are the kids working really hard:)
