I admit that we've been pretty lax in getting things done. Life is crazy, and it's hard to remember to do things like this all of the time. But I went through his book earlier today and discovered that two of the electives that he could do at home could definitely be used to my advantage.
One was helping in the kitchen, and one was helping to make a snack.
|Can't have too much cheese....keep adding!|
If you were to ask him, he would say that he made supper all by himself. He'd be close to right. He did pretty much all of the work, with me telling him what to do and only helping him when he needed it.
After we got supper made, he helped me to make some banana bread too. Of course that was more fun because that involved smashing things and breaking eggs.
And he didn't get into quite as much trouble as he usually does.
Maybe I've found something that will actually keep this kid occupied. All I know is that if it works, he will be my permanent helper in the kitchen.

|Making brownies for his birthday|
treats for school tomorrow.
