Perhaps you thought I was already on spring break by my limited posting. Life has been rather busy in our household. We've already begun the "end of the year" school performances - chorus and drama club have both had big productions -- and I've been busy interviewing for job and contract positions. It's all good, but always busy.
And now...a public service announcement:
SEND SANJAYA HOME!
Back to your regular post...
We are in the midst of the final push to get on the road for Hilton Head, South Carolina. We are hoping to beat some of the crowd out of town (can you say 'mass exodus'?) and kick start one of our favorite vacations. Grace remembers going last year (though she was only 18 months)and cannot wait to build a BIG sand castle and play. She's the cutest thing talking loudly about the Beeeeeaaach in her very precise toddler voice. I got a few fun toys to enjoy - one lets you build a big dinosaur with sand molds, another lets you view life in the tidal pools. I got a skim board also and pray that we don't come back with some kind of body cast on my daredevils. The beach is great for my three...no matter how hard they try they cannot make more noise than the surf and wind. I think a kid should be allowed to scream into the wind unchided every so often.
Oh yes, someone miraculously guessed the photo of the potter. Jerry Brown is a pottery artist in Alabama and we recently encountered him at an art show while visiting my parents. We ended up buying some pottery from other people at the show and I'll post more on that later. It was a surprisingly cosmopolitan art show for such a small town and the indigenous artwork was inspiring. The kids absolutely loved it.
I've got more news for another post. Right now the beach awaits us. :-)
