It's been awhile, hasn't it?
We are set to finish our school year in the near future.
We'll take a mini summer break before starting year round school.
I hope to come up with a productive schedule for myself,
that allows for blogging time each week.
That way, you won't end up missing me when I'm not here.
(You have been missing me, yes?!)
In April we took a very fun family road trip.
We spent a week in beautiful Cape San Blas, Florida,
and a few days in Chattanooga, TN.
I look forward to sharing parts of our trip with you.
Up first- Cape San Blas!
Cape San Blas is a very remote area on Florida's "Forgotten Coast."
The landscape is made mostly of gigantic sand dunes
and palm trees swaying happily in the warm coastal sunshine.
You won't find any high rises here!
(Just the way we like it!)
Our townhouse was huge and beautiful-
we hardly knew what to do with all of the space.
Our Night Owl got super sick on day 2 of our trip,
which resulted in a midnight trip to the ER.
(Note to self for future: pack a thermometer and have an emergency plan!)
While Night Owl was down and out,
Mr. Sunshine enjoyed making a bunch of "Secret Agent" movies on his camera.
They are BEYOND cute.
I hope to share a few of them in a future post.
It was great to see how well he entertained himself
(thanks to his amazing imagination)
He even made supper one evening, because we were busy tending to Night Owl.
My heart is blessed to be a mama to such compassionate and helpful boys.
Love them bunches!
Some of our favorite moments include:
making sandcastles (Mr. Sunshine especially enjoyed this!)
exploring the state park (which is known for it's remote beach and huge dunes)
watching dolphins in the sea (daily!)
playing some beachy football,
walking the shore... the sand was so sugary white and so very soft...
watching beach mice in the evenings (cute little things!)
writing postcards while at the beach,
eating on our patio nearly ever meal,
and watching Netflix at night.
Oh, and of course, watching Mr. Mustard Seed attempt to start a fire on the beach.
The boys were cute in telling him,
"It's okay. You're like Charlie Brown when he couldn't fly a kite."
But, enough of my chatter!
Let's get to the pictures, shall we?!
And a few pictures of Night Owl trying to dig to India.
He used every bit of might he could muster up.
Before giving up, he yelled "HELLO!" into the hole.
I enjoyed watching this!
Well, thanks for stopping by.
I'll be sharing our time in Chattanooga in two parts.
The first part will focus on our time downtown,
and the second part will be our time at Rock City. (One word: AMAZING!)
I also plan to write reviews on our curriculum for the past year,
as well as share the curriculum we will use for the upcoming school year.
Are ya'll looking forward to any exciting adventures this summer?!
