Ever since I can remember my mom would make a cake on report card day -- crazy since she was a teacher...but now I'm doing it. ;o) When we got home from school we would look over our report card with her and eat a piece of cake. If there was a need to talk about a grade we would or we would celebrate - sometimes both. It was a special time and I hate to say I haven't been as good with doing it as my mom was ... but I try to at least once a year.
Here my daughter is several years ago -- as you can tell I bought a cake that time instead of making one. :o) Just another way to share a special tradition and let my mom's legacy live on.
