Bye, Bye Birdie

A little pause from catching up on cookies and cake: a news update. We are no longer the owners of parakeets - they have moved to a better owner who will, we hope, appreciate them and the sounds and tumult they make more than we did. Amazingly, a great many people were interested in taking them in - we posted a message on the local email list and got about ten responses within just a few hours.

The first semester of the school year has ended, and all of the kids did beautifully. Shana (GULP!) passed her driving theory test, and is now embarking on the practice portion of the whole horrifying experience. Actually, she is having fun and enjoying it. I won't go on a rant about the scam-iness of the whole system, but let's just say it's an expensive proposition. We are deep in the throes of bar mitzvah planning, and looking forward to the event itself.

I will be back to baking updates next!
