Six Sneakers and one sweet notebook.

All three at the same school. It seems surreal. My youngest in kindergarten?! When did that happen? Back when they were babies,  I remember staring blankly through a fog of total exhaustion hearing people say, ‘Enjoy it…they grow up so fast.’  At the time, all I wanted to know was how many more pounds/how many more weeks before this child sleeps six hours in a row?! Now look. I need a bullhorn to wake them up some most mornings. I blinked and here they are. So the start of every school year marks a bittersweet celebration. Of course you need cake and ice cream for that.

A back-to-school cake has become our tradition. This year, I decided to create a notebook cake. In the past, I’ve done a pencil, a chalkboard, a minivan carpool (super ambitious year) and an apple.  There is no better way in our opinion than to rehash first days over cake and ice cream.

This notebook is spiral bound. Quickly I might add. This is one very busy notebook factory. Speaking of which, I need to get back to my homework that includes filling out a couple hundred forms that I’m pretty sure multiplied last night while we were sleeping. Here’s to another school year.

  2. HI June, Oh I like your ‘new home’. I will look around after writing this. Yes time flies with kids… son started his first grade this year and my second daughter will start preschool next week. Only one left at home…..and maybe some more art time for me, who knows.
    Smiles, Anke ;)

  4. found the cake image via a google image search, and stole the idea to make one for my daughter. It’s waiting for her to come home right now! :)
