We are starting back to school this week. Easing into it. Partly because I'm just not ready to start back at the beginning of August (but my fellow co-op moms are, so there you go), and partly because I still haven't gotten All The Stuff together. So. This week we'll do literature and history, a little govt. (for Travis), and Latin review. But today, in honor of Saint Monday, we went to the beach!
We packed a picnic, but I forgot the plates. And the napkins (but I remembered mayo and a knife to spread it with!). Ed talked sweetly to the man at the snack stand and got us zippy little red striped sandwich trays. The kids thought they made our lunch look Very fancy!
Ed had car magazines.
And we finished with ice cream! The shop has stopped carrying Cappuccino Crunch. I wept for a while (inside) but then consoled myself with Moonpie. It was not nearly as good, but it still was pretty good! Ed and Katie got Mint Moose Tracks, which was excellent.
