Unexpected learning

In general numbers are not of great interest to Zachary at this point, until NASCAR. He will work out numbers so he can read the numbers on the cars. I guess I can tolerate some short bursts of NASCAR on our TV if he is working out the difference between 34 and 43.

Today we baked bread and buns. While measuring out the flour Zachary dropped the 1 cup measuring cup in to the yeast slurry which gave us the opportunity to discuss how many half cups equal 1 cup. A bit of fractions, multiplication and some extra dishes to wash. The fruits of our labor were delicious topped will grilled burgers and a side of roasted beets fresh from the Farmer's Market.
