I got to put my toes in the sand this weekend!! The water was freezing and it was pretty windy, but I got my toes in the sand!
Jeff left for a conference on Friday morning. He had a pretty great Friday and Saturday, learning, making good contacts, and spending some time on the beach.
On Friday evening, nine teams from my school participated in the Battle of the Books. The teams compete against teams from our four closest elementary schools. There were almost 40 teams this year. The participants study 10 books over the course of six months to be ready to answer 40 specific questions about the books. The answer to each question is the title and author of the book. The kids worked so hard and I was so excited when our school won first and second place.
On Saturday morning, we slept in and hung around the house. Jack, Luke, and I stayed in our pjs until 11 o’clock. I got a bunch done around the house – laundry, organizing, purging, and dishes. Luke worked on one of his birthday lego sets. He worked on it all week and was so proud of his finished project!Jack went through his cards and decided to organize them.We checked in on our babies! They are getting bigger fast and are still so ugly/cute!
After swim team practice, my mom came over, I finished packing, and hit the road. I love this bag from Stella & Dot. It was perfect for an overnight. I love how it can expand too!
I was headed to the beach to join Jeff for the night.When I got there, we grabbed a bite to eat and headed out to the beach for a little bit. I realized I forgot a necklace to wear with my dress and it definitely needed one. There is a fabulous little boutique called Patty Jeans and I knew they would have what I needed. I picked up this Spartina necklace and I love it! I needed to get my toes in the sand. It was a little windy, but I got a big dose of Vitamin Sea. That salt air feeds my soul!
We headed back to the hotel to get ready for the dinner that night. Jeff won the Athletic Director of the year for his district this year. I am so proud of him! He works a lot of long days and I think he does a great job! Apparently, the other athletic directors in his district agree with me. ❤️ Before we left on Sunday morning, I went out for a nice, flat, Coastal Highway run. I love running at the beach! It was pretty cloudy but I got to see the sun peeking through when I took a little walk on the beach.
After the run, we headed home to make it to Jack’s double header. He did a great job and went 1-1. Jack’s team is really coming together and it’s fun to watch. We headed to a new to me restaurant in the next town over and it was delicious. It was a gourmet hot dog restaurant and all 4 of us walked out of there pretty full!!
We are heading into a fun, but busy week. Luke has baseball games on Monday and Tuesday. Jack has a baseball game on Thursday. Luke has soccer tryouts on Thursday. My sister is coming into town late Friday night! Luke is making his first communion on Sunday and we are hosting a party afterwards. I keep calling this busy schedule living the dream. It really is because I love all that we are doing!!
Have a great week full of sunshine and books!
