Red White and Blue


Today was Red, White and Blue Day at camp. So Iain whipped out his extra special Charleston Library T-shirt (a gift) and off he went.

It was a hit. Most of the kids were dressed in either red, white or blue. Not Iain. No sir. He's got camp spirit to spare.

Today they made parfaits out of blueberries, strawberries and yogurt. They made stars on sticks (paper stars, painted, on popsicle sticks), and they had a parade where they all waved scarves. I guess they didn't have flags.

It's crazy hot. For the last 3 or 4 days it's been in the 90s, and although we're pretty comfy indoors and it's cool by evening (so we can walk), that's still hot. So Iain and I have decided that this weekend we're making ice cream and sorbet. Last summer I made wild blackberry ice cream, black tea ice cream, chocolate sorbet, and lemon verbena ice cream. Any votes for this year?

I am making toasted coconut ice cream today. And also on the list: rhubarb ice cream or sorbet, raspberry ice cream and possibly passionfruit. :) Family is coming; gotta have ice cream.
