June 11, 2016

Today is Michaella Doe's 13th birthday. She spent the entire day with me. I taught her how to use measuring cups and measuring spoons and fractions. She did not know how to crack an egg. So we practice. Then she made a wonderful chocolate cake. Michaella wanted to put chocolate frosting on it so we made a cook frosting and she put a very thin layer on the cake. Oh! It turned out wonderful. Sister Clawson made some pink roses and Michaella put them on the cake and then we experimented with some of the icing tips and Michaella put on some green leaves, and made a double border around the edge. It really turned out pretty. This is the first homemade cake she ever made and she was very proud of herself. Then we spent an hour learning how to direct music. We only got through 3/4 time and she does not understand it well. But she is learning and I am learning on how to teach conducting. We both have a lot to learn.
