The end of summer is always bittersweet for me. On one hand I’m sad to see summer go. This summer seemed to go by faster than usual too. On the other hand the start of a new school year is always so loaded with potential. I am really excited about what I have planned for this year. With out a doubt the kids felt the same way. It’s hard to say good bye to all day in the pool, the beach, fun trips, and summer camp. To ease the transition I promised them if they got all their work done we’d take a mini field trip at the end of the first day. Our mini field trip was definitely science themed. Liquid nitrogen ice cream seems to be all the rage. Shops are popping up all over. I really liked Chill’N because they really showed the science of liquid nitrogen. I also loved their nod to the periodic table. If you live in Fort Lauderdale or visit our fair city Chill’N is a fun and educational place to get ice cream. The ice cream is great. We all look forward to going back and trying other flavors!
