We had Joshua make a list of things he would like to do with Mommy and Jeremiah before he started school. I figure since he'll be at school all morning each morning, he'll be missing out on the fun little trips we usually do during that time. His list was pretty short. The mall, the children's museum, learn some new math that sort of thing. (I know the math thing probably seems out of the ordinary, but he really loves it so it felt pretty natural to us that he'd want to do more of it before school started). The last thing on his list has been put off for a good while now due to schedules and mostly the weather. Today was a beautifully glorious day so we talked Daddy into hitting the beach with us.
Whenever we go I let them each bring one small thing home with us (usually a little rock or a bit of shell) to put in a glass jar on the dinning room table. Obviously this rock didn't make the cut...
Daddy even helped build a sand castle.
This was, of course, the highlight of the whole trip... until someone else's kids smashed it.
Sorry, I just thought this was so cute!
So theoretically Josh should be totally ready now to start school Tuesday. Just need to pick up a few more folders and what not and we'll be ready to go!
