Cooper is in school five days a week now. While I think he likes his teacher and school in general, I noticed that perhaps he could use a break. As we have two more years before he even goes to kindergarten, I hardly want him to burn out at school before then! So yesterday we "skipped school" and spent the morning at the beach. Really I ought to call it a "field trip" or "outside education" as I think the kids can learn a lot by being outside and exploring nature. Plus, I miss my little buddy during the week!

|Even more confident...good thing I brought swimsuits!|

|Sandcastles? Pshaw! Must make train tracks in the sand when you go to the beach.|
|I love little feet in the sand!|
