As I have been researching the "World of Homeschooling", I have found a fair amount of articles stressing the importance of dads being involved. While we have not officially crossed over, I am using quite a few of the techniques and ideas I have found in my studies. When I saw this happening at the dining room table I had to take pictures.
My kids and husband have made guacamole a ton of times. They all love it. On occasion while grocery shopping they will ask if they can pick out the ingredients. This week avocados were on sale and kid #1 knows the way to his mom's heart is a sale! So we picked some out. (Limes, tomatoes, and onion, too.)
Here are a few pictures of what happened when we got home!
Scooping it in!
Rolling the limes before squeezing them!
Now kid #1 gets a turn!
I would love to show you the finished product, but it was eaten promptly. I loved listening to all the conversation that happened around this project: how to pick the best avocados, how to get the pit out, the health qualities of guacamole, who was doing what job, how they could include kid #2 to help her do the things she would be best at...it was great! It is times like this I almost think we could do it!
