Clearly, my wisdom is questionable

Good morning! Well, as any normal Dungan weekend would be, it was jam packed. First, we had the end of two contests. The recipe submissions for the Lunch for a Cure cookbook ended on Friday and the contest to appear on the cover ended on Saturday. In all, we had over 600 recipe submissions for the cookbook and roughly 140 individual photo submissions for the cover.

Amazing! And to think we did it all in under a week.

Now the load is all on my shoulders. By the end of today, I need to have the cover artwork to the printer. Then, I have to go through the painstaking process of going through all of the recipes and getting them laid out in the cookbook. All said and done, that part will take several days. But hopefully, if I do my job, we should be shipping the cookbooks by Thanksgiving.

In the meantime, I did have the chance to be a little artsy this weekend. Graham had a bible project for school. Our subject was King Solomon's wisdom. We had the choice to make a poster, sing a song, or just about anything you can think of to get the lesson across. We chose to create a movie. We reenacted the great story - The Judgment of Solomon. Of course, we had to have our own twist. Graham played King Solomon, the girls played the two mothers, Lynley narrated, and you guessed it, I got stuck with playing the part of the baby. It was all good fun and if you have a spare minute and 42 seconds it is worth a good laugh. I can't say that we are particularly good actors but at least we are fun.

You are questioning my wisdom now, aren't you? Yep, the things you do for your kids...

Well enough fun. As you can see, a book's worth of purpose lies before me.

It is fantastic! I don't know what I'm more impressed with… Ainsley with that sweet joy on her face, or Graham, that earnest-faced leading actor, or Sydney with that intensive concentration on her lovely face. Thanks for bringing sunshine and great joy to a foggy and gloomy Düsseldorf-day.
