Let’s Be Pen Pals

 
 
It’s that time of year again, and it has crept up on me and almost caught me unaware…or should I say unprepared. I think I blinked and just about missed our lovely six week holiday! It went way too fast.
 
 

Time now to refocus, stock up on new pencils and paper, clear the white board, reorganise the bookwork shelves, write up endless lists, timetables and schedules, raid our family library and hit the books. 
 
The school year has begun! (eek!)
 
We are a little late getting started this year….a  benefit of homeschooling. Our school life fits into our real life and is fluid when it needs to be. 
We have welcomed home our two missionary travellers and heard a few tales from their different adventures overseas. It has taken time for them both to adjust back into family life, but they have been enriched by their experiences of serving others and being a part of something bigger than themselves.
The rest of us had a lovely and busy holiday, with many visitors, as usual. Mama Bear’s kitchen certainly gets a workout over the summer…..lots of opportunities to try out new cupcake recipes!!
 
With that in mind, I am here to say ‘hooray!  let’s kick off the school year with a childhood favourite, Peanut butter and jelly cupcakes. While us Aussies call ‘jelly’ jam and and ‘jello’ jelly, let us not get confused and state plainly that these cupcakes have a rich peanut butter and raspberry jam frosting on top of a vanilla cupcake with a dollop of jam hidden inside.
 
YUMO!
