Today we went to George Washington Carver National Monument. We came on a day called Carver Day, and on this day there were lots of fun activities. George Washington Carver was a black man who always wanted to help people. He invented things to do with the peanut to help all of the slaves. He was thinking that if he could get the owners of the slaves to see all the things you can do with peanuts they would tell the slave to plant a few, and take care of them, and them they would not have to work with the cotton plants as much. I think that this man was amazing because he could be nice to every single person, and that is hard for a lot of people (including me) to do. I want to be a lot like George Washington Carver because it makes me feel so good helping people. For example, at my birthday party, instead of presents I collect money and give it to charities, and every year I do it I am more and more proud of myself
- First you take raw peanuts and crack them.
- Then you take a bowl and a spoon and mash up the peanuts.
- After that you add a little bit of boiling water to the peanuts, and mix it.
- (If you like pulp you don’t do this step) Next, you take a strainer and pour the milk in and then you have no more pulp
- Next you put it in a cup and drink!
The peanut milk is a lot like regular milk because it has a lot of fat, but a good thing is that it has twice as much protein as regular milk. Then we got our JR badges. After that we were walking back, and 2 women stopped us because we had our vests on with all of our badges. They took our picture to put in their newspaper and on their internet site. Finally we drove back to the KOA, and went swimming for a little bit. Then we took a shower, ate some dinner, and went to bed.
