There was something so peaceful and calming for me those days on the beach. Having my boys contently playing in the sand and waves while I relaxed and watched did wonders for all of us.
We had to squeeze in a few more swims--but only the hot tub was warm enough. When the neighbor's kitty showed up, the boys jumped out to chase it.
Caden practiced the Thriller dance for months with his preschool class. They performed it at the Fall Festival. They asked for volunteers for the mummy wrapping contest. Caden was really hesitant and I had to talk him into it. We ended up winning! Later, he told me he didn't want to do it because he thought he had to get down to his undies to be wrapped up.
