Children of the Corn

To keep the kids busy this year I've enrolled them once again in the summer reading program which includes lots of activities like making flower baloons and winning prizes. Tim Horton's is offering free swimming at the pool once again and even the municipality did twice too because of the heat wave. As for dd2(18) and ds2(13) they are doing corn detasseling. This of course pays much better than my son's newpaper job but its temporary so he's going to take advantage of it as long as the season lasts which is pretty short, about a few weeks. This is the 4th yr dd2 has done it and the first year for ds2. I've never tried it myself because I never grew up in this area and in fact never even heard of it till we moved down south.
