I'm just wrapping up a week off from work and am so thankful to have spent a lovely week at the beach with the twins. It has been an entire year since I took a whole week off from work and it was SO NICE! I did not drive for an entire week when I normally drive 70 miles round trip each day! I loved watching the kids have tons of fun and to be able to enjoy our time together instead of rushing through our short evenings after work and school.
The kids rode their bikes, played on the playground, went to the boardwalk to go on the rides, played in the waves, dug in the sand, saw cousins and friends...... and just had a great week.
It was the perfect way to end the summer..... Tuesday they head to SECOND GRADE!!!! I can't believe it. I have ambitious plans to bring better order to our routines after a stressful and bumpy transition to first grade. I'm hoping for a smoother year, but am ready to tackle whatever comes our way.
Counting down the days until our next vacation in just 2 months this time instead of a whole year!
