And do you know what else? They are raising handy children! Children who can cook and make things and do lots of useful chores.
Sure, my kids cook. In a campy and supervised make a huge mess and its barely edible sort of way.
But Scott and Cori are raising children who can cook things and fix things and make things and handle things like a propane tank or a 700 degree pizza oven.
It’s true. They can. And I tried to act really cool when my boy accompanied his new friend out to pop their pizza into the SEVEN HUNDRED degree pizza oven.
Because they probably assume that all kids can handle this sort of thing, and they are probably right, I simply have not had the opportunity to observe my boy’s prowess at cooking in a seven hundred degree cavern fueled by open flames.
Seven hundred degrees of fuel.
Thankfully, although handy, the kids are still complete goobers.
As all young pioneers should be.
