My babies in Kindergarten

Can you Believe it? My baby is in kindergarten. I didn;t think it would have bothered me as much as it did. It is a tough day when you realize that your baby is growing up.
anyways, he did better than expected. he met a new friend that he really enjoys, and doesn;t live far from us. He left his blankie at home (Abbey told you that he definately couldn;t bring that to school). I did have his blanket in the car and ready for him, and he was so happy to have it. By the end of the day He was exhausted. When it was time for bed he asked me to pick him up, and when I replied no, he said"please mommy, you baby boy is so tired". Oh my goodness. Does he play the heart strings or what?
The next day he went a full day and when it came to walk in with the teacher, he went right in like a champ. Like I said. My baby is growing up. Enjoy everday you can, you can't get those days back. There only babies for such a small time.

Abbey's 1st day of second grade

Well, another school year here. Abbey is enetering the second grade. She was up at the crack of dawn. She got herself all dressed with her new clothes and shoes. She was so excited that she left the tags on all her clothes. For her 1st day of school she decided to sport a new outfit from Justice. I think she thinks she looks like Hannah Montana. She did look cute. Well, it is now time to adjust back to school schedule. Bring on the fall.

Plum Island

Finally, we had a day without rain. What do you do
when it has been raining everyday for the last 2 months
and you get a day that is sunny and rain free? You go to
the beach (before it rains again). Kerry has been wanting to get to the beach all summer, but with the rain it has been impossible. Well, we checked the weather for the week and Wednesday was a go. We packed our lunches, sand toys, boogie boards, and kids and off to the beach we went. Kerry has never been to Plum Island, so I thought it would be fun to go there. When I was growing up, my family and I would go to plum Island almost every weekend. I have found that 20 years later, I still love it.
The weather was gorgeous, the beach was busy. There was a ton of kids at the beach. I think lots of moms had the same idea. It's not raining, get the kids outside. This was Maeve's first trip to the beach. She was so good. She loved the sand(even the taste Hehehe), but was afraid of the ocean. Unlike her mother, she took a liking to the seagulls. She thought it was great to run around feeding them (I showed her that). Ryan was very content in his beach chair eating goldfish, until he explored the water. He then decided he wanted to swim the rest of the day. Abbey and Orla spent all day in the water riding the waves. Of course Abbey was freezing and had to come out often to warm up, but not Orla, she stayed in the water ALL day. It was fun to watch Orla enjoying herself so much. She was jumping and riding the waves, without a care in the world. I have to say, the waves were pretty good sized for this area. Orla was wounds to prove it. She had scraps on her chin, belly, and legs from getting slammed by the waves into the sand. It didn't matter though, she was lovin life.
Kerry and I chilled in our chairs and people watched, always fun.
To top off the day, we stopped at Friendlys and treated ourselves to ice cream. We had a wonderful day, and I am hoping to get one more beach day in before school starts. Please let the rain stop!!!!!!!

A walk down the beach

I have my last photography class this coming wednesday, a
nd my final project is "A walk down the beach". Well, I took a ton of photos when we were at the cape, but I needed a few more. These pics were taken in a beach in Newburyport Plum Island. It was cold, but oh so pretty. The beach is my favorite place in the world. The air is clean, the water crashing against the shore, the sand between your toes. Serene..... this is how I feel about the beach.
