Only two more days until Starling and Merlin are back at school. Thank goodness I have no kindergarteners this year, what with all of that staggered half-day start nonsense. Throw them right into the proverbial pond and see who floats, is what I say. I am hoping that Cari and I can at least do something about that this year. Or before Hummus starts anyway.
The kids wanted a last day at the beach, so I was happy to bring them. Hummus is still a bit banged up, but really seemed to believe in the healing power of salt water on his wounds. He cried a lil’, but he will be fine in the end. Röbby had to stay home to do the yard work and install a few light fixtures. He just loves doing around the house.
After some PB&J’s for lunch, Hummus fell into another one of the epic naps he has been taking for the last few days. I was able to get a sweet picture of Starling, Merlin and me without old bumbly-legs and his unsavory looking wounds.
We came home with three happy kids and 2 new purses, a wristlet and cashmere wrap sweater. Another great family outing with Lah Lee and her lil’ darlings.
I wonder if I could get away with dropping them off to “help” their teachers for just an hour or two tomorrow? It is worth a try!
