Today, we had a little lesson in Heritage. I love these lessons. They make my kids listen in a way that no other lesson does! There hearts are open to hear just one little peep from a world gone by. They can't wait to hear someone's name mentioned that they might know. They both smile happily as Mommy passes on a tradition to one more generation. And they know that they are required to pass it down as well.
Today....we made Goop.
Goop is a heritage passed on from my Grandpa. I remember my mom telling me stories of him as she whipped up this divine creation, on cold winter days. I can remember the smell of the goop as we sat on the floor in the Hendricks Dr kitchen, not-so-patiently waiting for our yummy lunch. I can almost taste it (ok...so I just ate some, that is why I can STILL taste it...lol). It is a Heritage moment. A moment and memory that will be passed on to my kids. 4 generations of Goop lovers. And Abbie and Isaac ARE goop lovers.
Oh---and Goop is a simple recipe of Peanut Butter, Syrup, and Butter. The syrup makes the peanut butter all gooey. Thus---goop.
