I did it! I sent my baby to kindergarten! And...she loved it!

A started 2nd grade, and he is counting the hours until he gets to go back. His teacher is very creative and eccentric. He is going to thrive in her classroom.

Can I just say that I love this photo?

And...this one?

This is the face that found me this afternoon.

A difficult milestone for me, but I loved watching my children start these new chapters in their lives. Chapters that God has written just for them!

More Vacation Photos

Fresh shrimp that we caught and cooked ourselves.

A's favorite moment

We were so busy exploring the beach/ocean that we only made it out to dinner once. We went to LuLu's. Scott and A entertained the crowd by engaging each other in a competitive hula hoop contest. Scott let his guard done, and A bumped his hoop securing A's victory.

A fisherman and his pink net

O is on her way to becoming a famous sand castle creator.

My favorite experience...waiting for sea turtles to hatch!

Sweet Scotty made peach jam this week. We are already starting to think about Christmas. Wal-Mart now sells these adorable lids which make the wrapping so simple.
