Good Humor

“Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy… The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”

-from Psalm 126:1-3

Learning about each of the 50 states is one great part of our homeschool this year, and last week we reached the state that is hi in the middle and round on both ends.

Any guesses?


It’s Ohio.


Ha-ha! That little riddle was in our curriculum and I couldn’t resist sharing it.

One piece of trivia we learned is that Ohio is where the Good Humor Company first created ice cream on a stick. Hooray for Good Humor for inventing the concept! (And hooray for Dove for perfecting it!) Can you guess what we had for a mid-morning snack?

Yep. I am the coolest mom ever. Well, maybe not. But at least we felt cool eating ice cream on a random morning in March. Who says homeschooling isn’t fun? 

And wouldn’t you know? After about two bites, Linnea’s Good Humor ice cream bar actually fell off its stick. It landed squarely on her napkin, fortunately. 

But then she had to have a bowl and spoon anyway.

Likewise, Laurel needed a bowl and spoon for hers because she was eating slowly and her hand was getting tired of holding the stick. Evidently, ice cream weighs more than the popsicles they are used to eating.

Groan. I was really starting to think maybe this ice cream on a stick concept was not such a great idea.

But then I ate my Dove bar.

The LORD has done great things for us indeed.

What do you think? Is ice cream best on a stick, in a dish, or on a cone? Share your comments just for fun!
