Summer is just about over for us. We have exactly two weeks until school is back in session and if you would have asked me three weeks ago if I was ready for the school year to begin, I would have said "YES" in a New York minute.
For the most part, Nick and Sarah get along very well, but boy can they can bicker.....and a couple of weeks ago, the bickering was at an all time high!! I was more than ready to hang up my referee uniform and was kind of excited to think that new school year was just a few short weeks away. It would give the kids the space that they obviously needed from one another......
But all that changed the minute we hit the beach!!
They played so well together......no bickering, no referee needed. It was so nice to sit back in my beach chair and watch them dig in the sand, collect shells at the waters edge, and jump through the waves together. Even though they have their moments......there was no denying how much they love and even enjoy each other.
Our little trip could not have come at a more perfect time. Pat and I really needed a break from work and everyday life and it seems as though the kids really needed a change of scenery too!! I guess we all really needed some R&R.....or at the very least, some ocean air!
Here are just a few more pics I took of the kids on the beach.....
Throwing rocks into the water.
Cuddling up to his sister......love this one:)
Nick looks so mature in this photo.......gosh, he is growing up so fast.
Checking out the waves......love her sandy feet:)
Best Buddies....and COUSINS!!! Eddie came along with us, so I had to get one of the two of them together. He is just the sweetest little guy.......we were so glad that he could make the trip. Going to the beach just wouldn't be the same without him:)
Now that I am back to work and realize we had our last hoorah, I am a little sad to see the summer come to an end. Before we know it, Christmas will be here....I don't even want to think about it....
