Look! It's the Muffin Girls!!

Recently, with more time on their hands with school being out, the older girls have been doing some extra baking. They came up with an idea of doing some fund-raising for the Forever Home. They thought they'd like to use the money to go to the aquarium, zoo, or somewhere like that. We felt it was a good opportunity for them to learn more about the value of money, earning and spending it properly. Last Friday evening, the school had a costume party and the girls thought it a great chance, so they baked their goods and even solicited the help of some friends to help. Recently receiving some t-shirts with a muffin applique from the Savannah team, they made little chef hats, and they all dressed as the muffin girls and sold, what else but...MUFFINS!! They even sang the song, slightly changing the words to fit, "Do you know the muffin girls, the muffin girls, the muffin girls, do you know the muffin girls who live on Da Dong Lane?!!" I'd taken a video of them singing it, but it just didn't turn out well and there just was no repeating it, so sorry! It was all too cute, I have to say!!
They had several flavors such as vanilla, peach, banana, and pumpkin with chocolate chip. They did alright and was excited that they made 134 yuan which is about $19.71. It was a good experience for them and they had a great time!
