Last day of school for William until after new years. The class, mostly in groups, have been making gingerbread houses. There was a judging of them today. William worked alone and with gingerbread I baked and with candy he picked out and with icing I mixed before he went to school. Humourously, in a Douglas Adams kind of honour, his work tied for second worst. Although we didn't see it, William told us of one group who made an homage to 19th C Paris, including a ginger bread Eiffel tower-- which also did not win first prize. What we didn't realize is that these days, you can buy pre-assembled kits, ready for the final decorating. It made us curious about the prize categories.
