Audrey has almost become independent of me. Today's meal was prepped for and prepared almost completely by her. She told me what she wanted to eat on the way home and then she gathered most of the ingredients herself. I pulled out the frozen blueberries by instruction and passed her the raisins, which were already on the counter. She did the rest herself. This is really starting to come together for us. Hopefully she will be ready to take on an apprentice soon, Maurene will be ready to step up in a few months.
