Green Eggs and Ham

When my son arrived at his home last evening, he was greeted by his son who was begging his Dad to make Green Eggs and Ham for supper.  Dad obliged, with help from Jacob.

But the part I liked best was Jacob's reason for wanting Green Eggs and Ham.

He had learned at school that if you mix the color Yellow and the color Blue, you get Green.  So that's what they did.

Here is the result.

My son told me that he has never seen Jacob so excited about a meal before.  I thought it was great that he wanted to put into practice what he had learned.  And that his Dad took the time to help him.  That's what learning should be all about.


  1. He is a great Dad. Duane

  2. Yes, your brother has that "Dad" thing down. I think he had as much fun telling me about the green eggs as Jacob had making and eating them!

  3. Thanks Mom & Duane. It's times like these that I love being a dad. Jacob was just so excited to apply something he had learned in kindergarten. Pretty sure I'll remember this for a long time.

  4. David...It is things like this that make for lasting memories. Years from now he will say, "Remember, Dad, when we made Green Eggs & Ham?" It is the times that my parents took the time and effort to do things with me that stay in my memory when other, less important things fade away.
    Love, Mom
