Ice Cream and Optimism Follow Up:
Here are a few pictures of the kids in action on Ice Cream Day (taken as the battery on my camera was flashing - wouldn't ya know it.)...
They crushed up some favorite toppings -
Shook the life out of those bags - (sorry, it's a little loud.)
and VOILA - Homemade Ice Cream!
A teacher friend advised that we should use mittens - good call! Those bags were freezing! And next time I will remember to double bag everything. It was kinda messy, I have to say. The large bags got really wet, and the kids had salty fingers from holding the small one. Live and learn. Still, we had fun doing it. The ice cream melted pretty quickly so I ended up pouring what was left in their bags into cups, and we had milkshakes instead. yum!
With all the commotion, we didn't really have a chance to pause for the positive as I mentioned in my Ice Cream and Optimism post - so the next day when we were waiting in the doctor's office (poor Abby has bronchitis - in July - go figure), I asked the kids about some of their favorite things. Going to the playground & making sandcastles made their list.
Then later after lunch, we went to do one of my favorite things - get ice cream at Brusters! The ice cream in a bag was tasty - but sometimes, you just gotta have the real deal.
