Last year my class was tough. TOUGH. We just couldn’t come together as a school family. I had exhausted my bag of tricks so one Friday in September brought homemade cookies to school and called it ‘Cookie Friday’. I thought we could have cookies and milk and just visit. It took 15 minutes.
I saw a change. The next week when Thursday rolled around, a friend called out, ‘TOMORROW IS COOKIE FRIDAY!’ Um. Ok. And thus a tradition was born. We had homemade cookies every Friday, except one–I bought Oreos, and we spent time together. And we came together as one family.
It’s what a tradition does–brings us together.
Kind of like the Slice of Life Challenge…just sayin’.

What a beautiful acknowledgement of traditions– they bring us together! Food can be such a uniting force. Glad you shared this slice of life!
Such a wonderful tradition. I bet some of you students don’t get homemade cookies very often. Food and time for conversation goes a long way in creating bonds. Thanks for sharing. Here’s to 30 more days of slicing!
