It's my annual back-to-school post. Lucy's first day of 3rd grade was yesterday. Her room theme is Route 66.
As always, we have muffins for breakfast on the first day of school, thanks to Betsy-Tacy. These are Kababayn muffins, recipe courtesy Tia Rome. Very good, or as my brother says, "Donuts in muffin form."
