Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Christmas Baking

Sydney's butterfly jam biscuits.

Hope sifting flour for cookies.

Mrs. Edwards rolling out the Potica dough. This Slovenian pastry recipe has been handed down in my family from my great-grandmother, who emigrated from Slovenia in the early '20s. It must be rolled as thinly as possible.

Spreading on the honey-walnut filling . . .

. . . and adding raisins.

Rolled up and ready to rise before baking.

Baked to golden brown. Notice that the dough split open in several places--does this mean that it didn't rise enough before baking? I don't know.

Sliced and ready to share.
