I had completely forgotten what itâ€™s like to have spring break.Â Itâ€™s been so many years since I looked forward to a week without school buses and lunch boxes.Â Oh but seeing these kids I remember how much fun a week of freedom can be!
Itâ€™s been wonderful; mornings at the culinary center are usually quiet, I sneak in, make some coffee, and settle in to some emails.Â Sometimes we have an Italian class, or a team builder but theyâ€™re full of sleepy adults with toasty cups of coffee.Â Not this week! Weâ€™ve had energetic kids who are used to waking up at the crack of dawn in here keeping us all lively.Â Theyâ€™ve been making artistic creations with baked goods so far, itâ€™s wonderful to see what an unfettered mind will think of to make out of dough and sprinkles!
Theyâ€™re all so eager to learn too, itâ€™s great to see how excited they get when making cookies; I remember that feeling, when weâ€™d make and decorate cookies as a family.Â Itâ€™s wonderful to see that excitement live on; what a wonderful feeling to create something! Iâ€™d better get some rest though; weâ€™ve got more junior chefs the rest of the week.
