It has been raining for over two. weeks. straight. Picture if you will, 5 children stuck in the house with me. Yeah, they were pretty much driving me crazy. We had some good down moments; snuggling and playing games and I did manage to get a lot of school prep done. Thankfully we were able to get out a few times during the mini flood, but we really are spoiled with the amount of sunshine we get here in Florida. Our city is known for having the sun shine more days than most anywhere else; so to not have the sun shine at least some part of the day is culture shock for us. Hallelujah, praise the Lord; the sun came out two days ago! We didn't waste any time taking advantage of it. If you are lacking some sun where you are, I hope these pictures shine some light on your day:)
The kids found some really cool sea life and shells. It is always a learning experience every time we come for the beach. I would be happy to lay out in the sun all day if I was by myself but these guys sure keep me busy. They found so many beautiful shells and creatures.They were so excited to find a baby octopus in one of the shells they found, It soon inked them as it let them know it was getting a little too much attention. I love days like these when we can learn, explore and get outside together...and get some sun.
Do you live near the beach?
Where do you like to go to get out with your kids and explore in nature?
