that took some effort

I have been known to "suggest" that we serve snacks with "less" sugar in the first grade Sunday School class that I teach at church.

When you give 20 six year olds things like Skittles, marshmallows, Fruit Loops, snack cakes and such, it gets a little rowdy in a 15 by 15 room.

Let's reserve the sugar for the teachers, okay?

Anyhoo, I just got an email from Rufus's preschool teacher explaining that they are going to be making gingerbread men on Wednesday and could we send appropriate cookie cutters if we have them.

I guess when 18 kids are eating together, there are bound to be food issues:

"We have a recipe and ingredients that are nut-free, dairy free, gluten free and vegan, so all the children can enjoy the treat."

Oh good.  For a moment I was worried.

end note:  I have no idea if anyone from the school is reading this.  If so, I LOVE our school and am glad they can be respectful toward each child's dietary needs.

while they're at it, why not make it sugar-free too!

In a few years, they will stop serving food altogether at churches, preschools and schools. What in the world? I can understand the allergy issues, but come on people, let your kid live life and eat some processed food. Vegan!?

Yes, this is where Eamonn would add "flavor free" as well.
