Ice Cream Dinner at the Farm

The ice cream



About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    I love this. The last year of my father’s life was spent in a long-term care home, and he always ate his dessert first – with a twinkle in his eye.

      It is a rare treat, and especially wonderful when we’re in a heatwave. The farm is picture perfect, too. I hope you ‘give it a go’ one day. Best to you, Pete.

    When I saw the first picture the only thing that ran through my head wasโ€ฆ Old MacDonald had a Farm! And that brought back marvellous memories. There’s nothing better on a hot day than cold ice creamโ€ฆ

  20. Jim Borden says:

    The perfect food for a heat wave!

  21. Don Ostertag says:

    The farm makes me remember back in the day. The ice cream makes me remember when I could eat and eat ice cream and not worry about putting on pounds. Of course working on the farm burned off a lot of calories.

    Perfect. Is as cup of ice cream as expensive in Groton as it is in Brighton (NY)? Tonight, $4.50 for a small cup of black raspberry soft ice cream with almond sprinkles. But it was worth it. Last night, too. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ˜Ž

    This hot weather brings on the cravings!

  23. HI Jennie, ice cream for dinner sounds like a great idea.

  24. bosssybabe says:

    Yum!!!! We just recently took Charlotte to a local farm! She had sooo much fun with all the activities and seeing the animals ๐Ÿ˜›

  25. Blogs by J says:

    How lovely!! Great summer memories ๐ŸŒž

  26. Elizabeth says:

    Is that the one near the Eric Carle Museum? I think we went there and would like to go again.

    • Jennie says:

      No. This is in Lunenburg, MA. Cherry Hill Farm. The ice cream place close to the museum is right beside Atkins. Western MA has beautiful views, and great ice cream.

    And why not? ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  28. It’s now raining where I’m at so a cup of ice cream like that and a good movie or novel would be perfect for me.

  29. Carla says:

    I agree, ice cream for dinner or lunch is a wonderful treat. Looks yummy.
