Beach Part I


Someone tell me why my 3.5 year old looks like such a big girl. :-(  I'm just thinking about how much she's grown over the summer.  It's a joy to watch, yet it's kinda mind-blowing.  

I took this pic this morning right before I sent her off to the beach with my in-laws -- her second beach trip in two weeks.  We just got back from seven days at the beach (look at her awesome tan) .  I miss her so much already.  The house is way too quiet when she's gone.  How am I supposed to handle it when she's 18 and gone? :-(

Anyhoo, I am proud of how productive I've been since the princess of the house has been gone.  I've:
  • Straightened my hair.
  • Made a dreaded call to our old cable company to clear some unfinished business.
  • Picked up some monogrammed back-to-school items (that were ready for me to pick up two weeks ago).
  • Went to the post office to mail some long overdue baby gifts.
  • Went to the mall to find a nice cardigan to wear over my dresses.  Gotta convert those summer dresses to "teacher" clothes.  No luck, though.  (I see cardigans ALL THE TIME, yet the one time I go looking for one, I can't find one I like.)
And there are still some hours left in the day!  Now I'm sitting at my computer about to plan a fun lesson that suddenly came to me yesterday.  It involves Pinterest, so I know my girl students will like it.  Gotta make my boys well-rounded, so they'll have to deal with this one. :-)  I am especially excited about it because this particular unit is probably my least favorite to teach (and it's so much info, I'm sure it's not the students' favorite either).  I hope involving Pinterest will spruce it up a little.

Anyhoo, I wanted to share some of the pics from our Santa Rosa (FL) trip last week (I have more that I'll share throughout the week).

M has been to the beach at least twice a year all her life, and there have been times where she's been skeptical of the sand.  She usually warms up to it pretty quickly, but this time it took her much longer.  It wasn't really the sand, but the seaweed washed up on the beach.  She wasn't feeling it.  She eventually warmed up to it, though.


Chillin' with her Daddy and PaPa.

One of my nieces came with my mom again this year.
(She came back in 2010, too).



Snack time.

I have this same shot for three separate years.

And my mom.

So glad my niece came along.
They were perfect playmates.

We had more family at the beach the second day, so I'll post a few of those pics tomorrow.  I'm going to call my little one now.  She's enjoying the beach with ANOTHER set of cousins and I know she's having a blast.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

Update:  Literally a few minutes after publishing this post, my father-in-law texted me this pic of M and her cousins about to eat dinner.  (For those of you who are familiar with the Gulf Coast, can you tell where they are?  They're about to catch some rolls!)
