Every year for the past 5 years our family packs up and heads to the beach. It is our time to just hang out and enjoy each other. Now that the girls are older I wish I could say that the fighting didn't follow us to the coast but it does. We were asked by another family what there was to do in town. Matt and I looked at each other stumped because we basically just play on the beach. It is enough for us to make sand castles, swim, and hunt sharks teeth and sea shells.
Until next year...

Hey there. Fresh off vacation so this is short and sweet. Off to stock the house with groceries. I so don't like looking at an empty fridge because McDonalds always looks better when you don't have good choices at home. After a week of vacation I need to stay clear of those distractions :) Here are the questions this week:
1. What kind of camera do you have? Do you consider yourself proficient?
2. Are you doing any holiday events on your blog this year?
3. Fill in the blank: My child is an angel, except when he/she ____________________________.

Ugh, sorry! I am behind and I know it! Here is why though. Preparing for 5 people to spend a week at the beach is tough! We were leaving Sunday morning and hubs said "Do we have everything?" to which I said "We basically packed the whole house in our van so my guess is yes!" Well, we forgot the kites, chairs, and a hat for Matt.
Normally I disconnect completely when I am here but the girls are coloring quietly and I was editing pics from yesterday so I thought I would quickly post since I probably won't again until next week. Here is my hair after spending the night in a ponytail. My last cut rocked and I could totally wear it down with minimal work everyday but I don't like it in my face. Ponytail it is!
Please add your selfie to our flickr pool so we can all check them out in 1 place. Next week is Favorite Color.

Violet's style that is :) Sorry for wordless but we are busy, busy, busy today.
Just because I think that our Ruby looks like a little girl in this shot and not a baby. The only reason I know she is still my baby is the food on her face. She fights me washing it so sometimes she goes dirty. Sometimes lol :)

It happens to me a couple of times a year. I used to feel stressed when I didn't blog. Now my husband just says "You know you haven't blogged since *whatever day*" and I say "Yep, burned out". I am not a writer. This is not my business. Quite frankly I get bored with a lot of my own posts even though they are about my precious girls. School has started and our lives, and yours I am sure too, are CRAZY! I don't have an open day this week! I find that my little bloggy breaks normally put me back in the mood to tell our story again. As boring *yawn* as it might be.

for mama. Not for Violet. I love the preschool and it is because I know that Violet has the same teacher that Piper had, who I LOVE, and that she has the same assistant teacher as she had last year, who we LOVE, that it makes it a little easier for mama to let her little bird spread her wings. A little easier.
I called my husband after drop off and, as I was crying, asked him if it was ever going to get easier. "For you?" he said, "Probably not. But you know she loves it there". I do know that.
So what did Ruby and I do? Had coffee and a muffin with some friends. Had a nice surprise at Goodwill and got to catch up with one of my favorite mamas that I don't get to see often. Came home and picked up the house. Finally went back and got Violet. 3 hours isn't very long :)
Still long enough for me to miss her though. What am I going to do next year?
My heart is going to be completely ripped out when I leave my baby at preschool. Oh my, it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. Thankfully that is a whole year away.

The girls decided to join in on the mingle this morning. They were all up you know. Since 6:15 am. Matt says I will miss this. Umm, I am thinking no.
1. What are some fun attractions near where you live (farms, amusement parks, etc.)
2. Where’s the last place you and your spouse went alone?
3. Are you happy the kids are back in school?

Agh! How hard was this to do? Not screw around with my shot :) I must remember to take it outside next time but by the time I realized I forgot to do my selfie it was 2 pm on Sunday. Sorry gals I am getting later and later with my posts.
I did size it for the web though but didn't touch it otherwise. Again, so.hard.not.to.do! Please add your selfie to our flickr pool so we can all check them out in 1 place. Next week is Emotions/Expressions.
