The Beach

Last weekend, I was at St. George Island with girlfriends. It was the first time I left my kids and husband for 3 nights. They did alright without me. I originally was going to go home on Sunday, but decided to see what the guys thought about my staying till Monday. Lee said he spoke to the boys and they took a vote. They unanimously agreed that I should stay one more night. Don't I have great kids?! and a great husband?!

When I got home, they boys climbed in my lap and Lee talked to me for about 30 minutes. I knew that I was missed. Not just for what I do, but for who I am!

Here are some pictures of the boys playing with the sand I brought back. I also brought them a couple of books and they are the books of choice to read every night. The boys claim them as their favorites!

Joel claimed all the shells. Then he dumped his sand into his dirt pile in our backyard.

Jonathan wanted to make sand castles. That was when I wished I had brought home more sand. But he too added it to his dirt pile in the backyard.

Then they made mud!

Sounds like the trip was fun. Wish I could have come!
Don't you love how kids can take the stuff you bring them (sand) and make it totally their own (by making it into mud!) - I love being a mommy to boys!
