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