My poor girl has had a rough go of her first few days with braces. She not only is in pain, but the entire inside of her mouth is shredded. We had to go to the Ortho for an adjustment so that her mouth could stop bleeding, so I kept her home from school (her class was going on a field trip, so she couldn’t join them). We ended up having a great day at the beach (with a friend who also missed out on the field trip).
The temps last week were in the 90’s, and today have dropped once again into the 50’s. It was so incredibly windy and cold on the beach, and it ended up raining on us, but we all had a blast. The kids were happy to dig in the sand the entire time (they were creating a shelter from the weather), and we saw a large seal (or sea lion- we just saw his head) not to mention that flock of seagulls (heh, 80’s reference).
I know that school is almost over, but this was such a great pause in our week to enjoy one of our favorite places, and just get out to play (before everyone else has that same idea). Sometimes it feels good to shake things up a bit, doesn’t it?
And that first photo, is my new favorite photo. Ever.
What have you done today?
