Last Call for the Beach

On Sunday, October 7th, our housegroup started our new schedule, that is, we now meet on Sunday nights instead of Thursdays. For the entire week prior to our first meeting, I was frazzled just thinking about the day. No more going to church and then heading home for an entire day of lounging and reading the newspaper. After all, the kids would have to go to bed at 6:45 pm and actually go to sleep immediately for housegroup to go smoothly, but how would they do that if we didn't wear them out?

On the first day of the new schedule, Matt & Nadia came to our rescue by inviting us to Gillson Park Beach. They had just found a "secret" spot high up the beach that had a little hill for the kids to run up and down, which sounded like just the energy-expending activity I was looking for. We had a great time with them, so I can't explain why I only took this one picture of Izumi!

Next summer I hope to get out to the beach earlier and more often (this was probably our fourth visit for the entire year?!).

When was the last time you actually spent "an entire Sunday lounging and reading the newspaper"?

Oh my, Izumi is growing up. She changes so much from photo to photo. What a dolly. Sure looks like she is having fun at the beach!

See you next week for myself, sweetie!
