The kids have been out of school this week a few days due to Independence Day. So we have been taking advantage of the kids days off and put them to work on cleaning corn and beans. The kids wanted corn tamales so most of them were busy picking, scraping, and cutting the corn off of the cob. And boy did we have a mess.
Then we have beans that need cleaned. The kids have been picking out all of the rocks and dirt. And they had beans flying every which direction.
I don't think the kids realized how much work it was to clean the corn off the cob or clean the beans. I think it will help make them be a little more grateful for what they are eating the hard work that was put into cleaning and preparing them.
