I think you might want

someone else to taste them before going on to bake another pie.
I sometimes find fault with my own baked goods to have other people taste it and love it and claim it is perfect.

do you know anyone

who has one of those fancy sewing machines that could embroider the names? I agree glitter won't work well on velvet. The nap might just not hold it on.

Please thank him for his service

The standing for honor when recognition as a Veteran is called for is a personal decision. Your DH certainly has a right to stand and accept the praise and thanks.
My DH served during the Vietnam...

You can't tell the parents that you can not give advice, let alone tell teachers what to do and then tell the parents that it is not possible for you to help, that only the administrator can do that...

for anyone who does need almond flour

the best place to buy it is costco. It is still expensive compared to wheat flours, but much cheaper than other stores.

BTW-you should store almond flour in the refrigerator.

I went to a teachers' convention

when I just started teaching and at that time a lot of free things were given away. An educational toy store, Creative Playthings, was giving out buttons. Some people were not amused by the "I Am a...

I would be concerned

not just for the child(ren) but also for the officer. If he has bad intentions, such as grooming, then this is really dangerous. If as you suggest he is just trying to make close personal connections...

We eat dinner late..

now that we are retired we should eat earlier, but old habits are hard to break. My DH worked late so we always ate at 7pm. So, I guess eating at 5 would be early.
