Well, here's a hint. Yesterday, July 15th was a celebration of sorts. In fact, the whole month is a celebration.
It's National Ice Cream Month! We are doing a fun unit study on Ice Cream that can be found on Homeschool Share. It's free! My children think it is a fabulous thing to study ice cream - and what a great excuse to eat a lot of it!
On our first day we did the geography and social studies lessons. We learned about the top 5 ice cream consuming countries in the year 2000. Everyone was proud to be living in the country that ranked #1 for the year. (I'm sure we've done our part.) We learned a little about the history of ice cream and read an interesting book.
The highlight of the evening however was going to get ice cream. I wasn't sure we were going to make it, but at the last moment decided to go for it. We met friends at a nearby dairy and had the most delicious ice cream!
Eliana loves ice cream! She ate strawberry.
We sat on the porch of the store and watched a lovely sunset. It was a lovely evening. We'll have to do it again.
