Emperor has been homeschooling for two years today! This is the cake Emperor, Elf and I made together. Does it resemble any yellow spongy guy you've seen on TV? Lemon and chocolate icing were used, as well as one of those decorating gels from the grocery store. He also got to select the paper plates and ice cream he wanted for the celebration. He picked some really sweet Pooh bear things. I love that he can still enjoy these things while growing into developing a taste for literature and "older kid" things as well. Patrick says that our celebration is "silly," and celebrating this whole thing is a dopey idea. And *he* doesn't get any celebrations. (Oh. Then I guess we should just eat the cake and ice cream without you while you're at school?) "Oh, I'm celebrating!" Patrick said. "I just think it's silly." He might think it's silly, but he's not going to pass up ice cream and cake, even if it does get served on a cute Pooh bear plate. Congrats to Emperor for two great years!
