Our Jam

I learned a week before school that my discussion at the end of grade 1 of strawberry jam being his annual end-of-year teacher gift was, perceived by my now grade 2, as a foregone conclusion.

Made (almost) entirely by him (he had some help with the shucking and slicing) but we/he had it done with a days space before the last day of school. and a good thing too, because I had to re-can a number of jars because his “just strawberries jam” did not set properly.

He requested a rebrand on the labels (last year’s were not cool enough for an
8 year old)

All in all a success, I love that he has taken ownership of the process. Maybe next year he can do ALL of it by himself.
