Charlotte liked playing in the sand, Nate ran around for 3 hours straight, and Hattie enjoyed going in the water, but only when carried.
We had a good time, made a sand castle, ate lots of watermelon, and relaxed just a little. Which turned out to be a good thing, because we got back late Sunday night (not the original plan) and the next morning was the first day of school for Nate and Charlotte -- 1st grade and Pre-K, respectively.
As it turned out, we had such a hectic morning on Monday that I forgot to get the first-day-of-school photo, and had to take a second-day-of-school one instead. But you get the idea.
I am only just now, 942 loads of laundry later, getting around to posting about both the beach and school.
In exciting knitting news, while I was at the beach I made a giant washcloth and a first draft of a sweater for some lucky stuffed animal to be named later. Fortunately I made the sweater out of the cheap cotton yarn I've been using for the washcloths, because I did a few things that I plan to do differently the next time I do it (like not set in the sleeves backwards).
