It has begun…

I thought that by homeschooling we might avoid this scenario, but it has finally happened at the Odom household…

Saturday night the kids had long been tucked into their beds.  Kevin and I were in bed but still awake.  At 11:30 pm  my oldest comes into the room.
“Mom!  I forgot that I signed up to bring a dessert for 15 people tomorrow morning!”  As in, we leave for church at 8:00 am, and she needs a dessert by then for a luncheon her class is preparing for  their adoptive grandparents.

Thank goodness for having that box of brownie mix in the pantry.  It’s not the most ideal dessert, but it did in a pinch.

So glad my child is learning to serve!  Just wish she would give me a little more heads up next time!

    I saw the plated lunches in the kitchen Sunday and wondered who had done such a kind deed–now I know!

    Great picture and story. Glad to see that she is learning to serve and to think of others.
