On Saturday evening my boys took me blueberry picking for my birthday. It was great, even though the bugs got pretty bad, as the wind was still. We were able to pick enough to munch, and for at least one batch of muffins (which is what went on today).
As the boys were helping, as they most always do, it was quite a production. Finally, they were ready for the oven. E set the timer, but just to satisfy himself that our timer's time keeping is accurate, he did some timing of his own. He took his "minute" glass, and every time it was flipped, he jotted down the minute he was on.
The results: our timer's time keeping passed inspection, our wild blueberry muffins were browned to perfection, and E is very pleased about his baking and math skills...
...life learning is ever so delicious.
J couldn't resist showing off his blue tongue as well (though a blurry picture, as 2 year old boys shouldn't know what holding still means).
