Brady's School Days
I'm behind in my blogging since I took some time off from it. But in trying to catch up this post is from a couple of weeks ago... Valentines Day!
First I should confess that I was blah during Valentines Day... I didn't do anything. I know - that is so unlike me. I didn't make pink heart shaped pancakes, heart sugar cookies, no valentine cards for my boys, no boxes of chocolates. I can't believe I have been so bad this year.. I've never been this bad. I must have been in some kind of winter blah depression or something. But truly that is NO excuse for not showing love to my family during the love holiday. I feel like I have snapped out of it - but am sad I blew it!
Anyway... let's move on....
For Brady's Valentine's Day seminary devotional I made orange rolls for the treat. Kimmie from Pink Cookies with Sprinkles shared her recipes for cinnamon rolls and orange rolls. I thought it would be lots of fun to make the orange rolls for the class.
Last year I tried to make cinnamon rolls and it was a disaster. This year they were lots better. However, I have learned that I need to make 2 batches for 24 cinnamon rolls. This year I only did one batch and cut them really small. They were yummy but small. Step by step and I will get it right (maybe by his senior year).
However I did love making her recipe... I love her recipes.
I also made the book markers for the class. That is all we did this year. You can find the original post here from last year.
Now I wouldn't be a proud mama if I didn't post Brady's awesome report card.. Woo Hoo 4.0...
He is truly a smart cookie. So far during his high school years he has only had 1 "B" from a terrible teacher.. He is working hard everyday to be able to earn a college scholarship.
Way to go Brady!! I am very proud of you!
