For the last five years, Edy’s Ice Cream had a contest where the winning essays got an ice cream party for 100 people. I won that contest four years in a row. (I didn’t know about it until the second year.) Every year, we chose to do it on the first day of school for the neighborhood children. This year, there was no ice cream contest. But the kids in the neighborhood still wanted ice cream. Can’t blame them. So we got ourselves to the store, bought 30 containers of Edy’s Ice Cream, 8 lbs of Italian ices, and started scooping … Rocky Road, Mint Chip, Summer Peach, and more … what a sweet way to start the school year!
Good luck to every child starting a new school year!
