I grew up in Rockford Ilinois and went to a school that is no longer there called Riverside Elementary where I have fond memories of teachers and friends.Then they closed that school and we had to go to Julia Lathrop Elementary it was there that I started I guess you would called it my " Cookie Business". My mother would always bake for every holiday from valentine cookies, pistachio cake for st. Patricks day to easter, halloween and christmas. She would make the best butter sugar cookies in the world and we would decorate them. Well she made a big tub of them and I would take them to school and instead of sharing with my friends I would sell them for 5 cents a piece. But it was all in fun. My mother passed away 10 years ago and I can still smell all the baking she did and all the love she put into.

What an enterprising student you were!  I bet they would have paid even more for such good cookies!  LOL

Wonderful memories of your Mother.  Keep them in your heart.  I'm sure you can still smell the cookies baking and taste them.
