Booger Cookies

I try to write mostly about home schooling, but I can’t help but put personal family things on here every now and then (okay, more than every now and then.) We had a fun vacation in California. Here are a few pictures.

On the drive to California we listened to a great book, Diary of a Fairy Godmother by Esme Raji Codell read by Rachael Lillis. It is a self discovery book about a young witch (only 100 years old) who finds out that she is best suited to be an “FG” (Fairy Godmother.) At the end of the book there is a recipe for Booger Cookies.
