Yes, we actually made ice cream by hand. Drew's science book had a recipe for ice cream, so we thought we'd give it a try. The kids tired quickly (a lot of shaking), but it was fun. And the ice cream was actually very good! To make it tastier, we added chocolate chips to our bags of ice cream. Mmm Mmm!
The weather here was beautiful last week - this week, not so much, too cold. We took a walk to enjoy and observe the signs of spring. The kids were determined to find butterflies/moths on the sledding hill at the city park. We didn't find any butterflies/moths but we saw the local hawk fly over the park. We also heard the frogs talking in the pond in the woods. Flowers are popping up, kids are outside playing, no jackets are needed, bikes are in constant use, and we are counting down the days to the Detroit Tigers 1st game (April 6). So far, it has been a great spring!
