Today, we picked some of our muscadine grapes and made juice. The juice was so delicious. My juicer is not a very good one, so it did waste more of the grapes than I would have liked. We also didn't have a good strainer, but the juice was so sweet and we enjoyed the process of making juice together!

A couple of Florida sugar websites:
From Cane to Sugar by Roberta Basel
Sugar by O. B. Gregory
Beginning to End Cane to Sugar by Julie Murray
Arin colored a picture of Florida.
this recipe. We used vanilla to flavor the rock candy.
here on Chasing Cheerios. We didn't have any peppermint extract or peppermint oil, so we used orange essential oils instead (which is really better since we are studying FL). Then, we took turns using it on each other's feet - although this probably would have been better to do in the bath - but Arin thought it was great and Ella was curiously watching.
We also read some more of our chapter book, Freddy Goes to Florida. Arin was not at all interested in this book today. Also, throughout the day, I quiz her about the state's nickname and about where sugar grows and how it grows, etc.
Tomorrow we plan on learning about the state bird - the mockingbird.
