Loving the Beach Life




I can't believe it has been almost a week. The boys are a toasty brown. Claire is a bathing beauty. She likes to go out on the boogie board. We have had soooo much fun.

The amazing thing is the people. Six families in one house, twenty two kids and twelve adults, and some of us are strangers. Crazy how it works, but it does. We share food cost{thanks Allison.}We share a house{thanks Linda.} We share community beach property{thanks everybody.}


There has been no fighting. All the kids have bonded and so have the adults.

Claire has been wearing swimming shoes the whole week, so when we went down to the beach to take pictures and we set them down in the sand , she cried because she didn't like the feel of sand on her feet. All the pictures have her crying.

I'm soooo....sad we are not there. I haven't responded all week because no one likes a crybaby..but I'm the crybaby tonight.
The kids are missing all of their friends and I miss my friends too. It looks like the weather has been great and that everyone is having fun. Catch a few waves for Riley and Mackenzie. Tell everyone we say "Hi". Tomorrow is the last day make it great.
I want to see some pics of your boys riding the waves.

Love the picture of the whole family! We sure miss all of you. The kids all look older since we were there a few months ago. Your hair looks great long, Laurene. We love reading your blog.

Your pictures look awesome! Look at those tan boys! Sorry Claire but sometimes a princess has to feel the sand between her toes.
