Young Bakers

My daughters spent the day at a friend's house yesterday.

The mother (my friend) spent the entire afternoon on the back porch, reading, on her day off. The four children came and went from the back door of the house all day to play in the backyard, to put on swimsuits, to build forts, etc.

When my friend walked into her house to use the bathroom she said, "It smells like bread in here!"

And the response from the two 10-year-olds was, "That's because we baked some."

Indeed, a beautiful loaf of bread was cooling on the counter. They had mixed, risen, kneaded, risen, and baked a loaf of bread throughout the afternoon!

And the kitchen was clean.
