It's That Time Of Year..

Back to ....
Can you believe that the summer is almost over?! It has flown by. We didn't get to do half the stuff I was hoping this summer. My kids don't go to school for a few weeks but we are already in full swing of shopping.
...for supplies...and clothes...and all the other items a Sophomore and 2nd Grader need.
I've also been spending way too much time trying to come up with lunch ideas for the pickiest 7 year old ever - ugh! My PTO duties have already started. We've spent days at the school doing top secret projects and I have several little cute-sies made up for gifts. So, once school actually starts I can share!

A Cool Treat for Hot Days

This is the quickest, easiest little treat and the kids love it... even the teenager kids!
Just get some vanilla ice cream and divide it up like above. Letting it get a little melty is good.
Get a helper to add some food coloring to the ice cream. If you have a super strong helper they can stir for you too - it might be more of an adult job though.
Assemble some containers to freeze ice cream in and some sticks.
Layer the ice cream colors in the cups and place in the freezer.
Voila! Rainbow ice cream pops :)

This was a fun activity for Riley and I to put together. Kolbi didn't want to help make them but she was sure willing to help eat them!
