That’s it. Summer’s over. We had a fab time in Rehoboth but with the beach out of the way, now we can focus on back to school! I am cooking up a little scheme that will have to happen over the weekend and that I cannot say, with any degree of certainty, will work out but I think I’m going to try! Over the summer our school (and the other neighborhood school) underwent 1.6 million dollars in renovations (collectively) and this would be just a little finishing touch as the renovations included no fiber art (shocking!). If you’re local and into crazy schemes let me know.
We were only at the beach for a few days so it was a swimming, ice cream, fun everyday kind of a trip and I loved it. The girls made friends at the pool. They had a blast jumping in over and over and over again, telling each other how awesome their jumps were and Avery and the other little girls enjoyed each other’s company hanging out by the steps and bobbing around in the shallow part. (Click on the image below for full effect.)
B was kind of ambivalent about the beach. I estimate that after two weeks of half days at the beach she *might* have grown comfortable with the water and the sound of the surf.
Maybe. Maybe not. But she did like the sand.
One of the days was a little rainy so we visited a maritime historical site, a toy store and Funland! At dinner that night Avery alleged that her favorite part of the day was the maritime museum because she enjoyed seeing the model ships. What? Chase, more appropriately, declared Funland as the best part of the day and also her Hello Kitty mermaid doll.
I’m so grateful to be wrapping up the summer with this special trip. And now, I feel ready to buckle down.
