My boys started school this morning. I am less than thrilled about it. I know some moms can't wait to get their kids back to school and out of the house, but I'm not one of them. I like having my boys around. And not just because they help out with their baby sister. I actually enjoy them. Sure we get on each others' nerves sometimes, but dang I hate to see them go. They are growing up so stinkin' fast! My oldest actually drove to school for the first time this morning. Drove! Aaak, how did that happen?
Summer may be officially over, but that doesn't mean I can't make homemade ice cream anymore. I made this Milky Way ice cream a couple weeks ago, and I'm wishing I had the ingredients to make it again today. It is smooth and creamy and oh so good. It doesn't have a strong chocolate flavor, so you can taste the carmel-y goodness. Yep, a bowl of homemade ice cream would definitely cheer me up today. Maybe I need to head to the grocery store.

1 bag (12oz) Milky Way candy bars, chopped
