Fortunately for my kids my math skills don't have to be SAT good to follow a recipe.
That's right, the kids and I totally made our own ice cream.
One of New York's many requirements for what I teach my six year old is Health. Since I was feeling kind of clueless as to what a six year old should be taught in health I did a search for 2nd grade Health Ed at an online homeschool bookstore. They suggested "What's the Big Deal? Why God Cares About Sex." Did you just recoil at the idea of teaching a six year old about sex too? We are going to learn about eating nutritiously instead. I realize that good eating habits aren't as much fun as sex, but since I've decided not to let my kids know sex exists until they are capable of doing SAT caliber math, nutrition it is. I did a little more research and found "Kids Fun and Healthy Cookbook."
Now you may recall that I've attempted to cook with my kids once before. You may also recall that that recipe was barflicious. Because of this I was understandably cautious, but this book is wonderful. The recipes are easy and quick to make and as an added bonus, my kids have eaten every healthy recipe we've made from the book without crying or vomiting.
Actually the recipes are so good I've taken to making them without the kids. It can be a little difficult to get Mallory out of the kitchen. She likes to help. So I've taken to distracting them by letting them go outside barefoot and climb trees. The higher the better.
I wonder how well those branches will hold. Well let's just do the math and see: y = (x + 3)2, then (-2x - 6)2
Right, I'm too lazy to do that math. I'm sure she'll be fine. That's what ER's are for anyway.
