Goodness, I've let too much time pass and now vacation seems like a distant memory and not current enough for blogging. All in all, we had a fantastic time with friends and family and we look forward to next year.
What also seems like a distant memory and it's only been a week was the 1st day of school. This year we decided to switch from Tues/Thurs to M/W/F. The kids go Mon and Wed from 9 to 1 and Friday from 9 to noon. So, Friday is now officially grocery store day. By the time I get the groceries, get home, put them up and get the kids lunches ready (I'm making lunch sacks they can eat in the car on the way home Fridays), it's about time to pick them up. I'm looking forward to another morning a week to get stuff done or just rest.
The kids had no problem transitioning back to school. They are all pretty outgoing and love school so the 1st day went pretty well. Cody unfortunately spent some time in 'time out' his 1st day. He now gets to play on the big kid playground, but was told to stay off the HOT slides. He didn't want to listen, so he was timed out. Fortunately, he didn't have any issues the next day. He also mentioned his new friends were mean.... not sure what that was about and it hasn't come up since. Cody actually plays really well with other kids (despite some fighting with his siblings), but he is one of the youngest in his class and some of the other kids seem MUCH older.... so maybe that played into it???? I am optimistic this was all a one time thing and all will go well.
Ok, while the beach blogging is over... the photos I'm afraid are not....
