{Chocoate Fever}

Clayton had a project in Mrs Walton's class called "chocolate fever". He looked so forward
to this project. They are reading the book, and this assignment went along with it. They were to pick out a wonderful chocolate recipe, and do as much as possible themselves.

I encouraged him to pick out an all chocolate recipe, but he was dead set on doing the Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. So in lou of crushing his spirit. . . they were a great choice.

I put everything he needed out on the counter, and away he went. He really did do it all by himself. Including egg cracking. He did a wonderful job.

He is very precise. And tidy too. I'm kind-of a messy cook.

I made these cookies around Thanksgiving, and I must admit his were much tastier!

Clayton is really enjoying school this year. I am more than grateful. Especially after last year. No tears, all A's, and is up every morning with no fuss. Miracle.

I love "hands-on projects". I think they really are the best way for kids to learn, especially boys!

Perfectly Golden Brown.

Clayton's Yummy Cookies.

And although the cookies were delicious the best part of this "project" was the way it made Clayton feel.

Good job, Son!

Whats for dinner tonight?

I just did the 30 day Shred and then I saw these cookies, that doesn't help me out much! Working out makes me so hungry! You are a good mom, I would have probably just made Braxton watch me do it!
