........without being reminded. Now normally I don't allow things to bother me and of course I think children should be following the rules but let's face it at that age they are going to break some rules.......a little back story. You probably noticed that yesterday I didn't have time to post. Yesterday my middle child had a play day at the school. Really what this is the parent volunteer and spend all day watching the kids outside while the teachers have a meeting. Well our class had 4 parents for 19 children(never type in anger or you have to correct.lol) so we were well monitored and having an amazing time! Suddenly the P.E. teacher comes over and starts screaming at the children like I have never heard an adult scream at children. The children were at a play station with 3 LARGE buckets of water, probably 20 gallons worth in each bucket, some balls that hold water like you would play with in the pool and some nets. Well they had been squeezing the water out over their heads and the heads of their friends. Every now and then a child would get in the bucket and of course we would tell them to get out. Well apparently they were not even allowed to squeeze the water out of these balls. Mind you the children used only about 5 gallons of water between all the buckets they didn't drain the buckets and there was more then enough left for all the other groups. While she continues to yell at them she makes them sit out of part of their next activity as well! Finally enough was enough and myself and the other parents stop the situation and tell the kids to go play. She starts arguing with us and the principal walks over. He doesn't even want to listen to what the parents have to say and didn't care how upset 4 parents were she walked away and he tells me that at their age they should have remembered the rules she said in PE the day before and should have followed them! That the parent's shouldn't have had to know the rules!! Now come on that is ridiculous! This guy reminds me more and more why I hate public school! I wish I would have had a tape recorder neither one of them would have a job. So if you are still with me lol do you think the kids should have remembered the rules from the day before and followed them regardless?? If not what age do you think it would be acceptable to expect that??
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
