The other day the kids and I went to a friend’s house. Aside from discussing design ideas, it was just around the 4 o’clock hour, so Dianna’s kids decided to serve us high tea.
This was a strange idea to my kids. The only one of my kids who has had “tea” is my middle child, but she’d never been served by an 11-year-old, and she’d never had crumpets.
The kids, though not super crazy about the taste of tea in general, enjoyed the experience, even the formality of it. They also discovered they like crumpets! So, the following day, just as we were thinking of heading to the library, the girls asked, “What about TEA?!”
So, we dug out our teacups, I got down my Irish tea set, and we set out to have a high tea of our own.
It may not be a tradition we keep with daily, but it sure is fun to do every now and then! Thanks to Dianna and kids for getting my kids interested in a fun new tradition!
