So my boy came home with many stories to tell of his first full day at middle school. Well actually he said they listened to a lot of rules, but he liked his English/Social teacher because he wears striped, collared, button-ups like his teacher last year who he loved! And they didn't get their lockers because they ran out of time and he had to carry his bag all day. And he's missing his best friend who moved to the island last week, but still has the other 2 of their 4-some in all his classes, but it's not quite the same. Day A will be a little difficult- English, Social, Health/careers, and Foods (will be fun except she talks really loud, but Erin assured him it's only because when everyone has stuff boiling, she wants you to hear). He says Day B will be much better, Math, Science, PE and Media arts!

I did a little emotional baking and canning all day, if you read my previous post, you'll understand these motherly things that just take over and confuse your entire mind and spirit. So we celebrated the day with the best chocolate cake ever, I'm always looking for opportunity to make this because it's amazing! Wouldn't it be great if you could taste over the internet? There are so many great cooking blogs out there, and I want to just sample the stuff before I go out and buy all the ingredients. Here's sending you a little taste of chocolate delight!

I really do wish I could taste it ... it looks amazing. Glad Jacob's day went well. I like the banner in the cake.

Hmmm, I had that cake last time I was at your house (minus the banner).
