Made it to Ocean City!

Well, we made it. I am sure that I have forgotten lots of stuff (and have already started my list for Jeff).

It is so nice to be down here again. The weather was beautiful. I relaxed just driving over the bridge. Still getting unpacked and trying to put the place back together again (we had the main room painted and had some other work done so everything has been moved around).

The trip itself was fun. Hit the Dunkin Donuts drive-through on the way so that the boys can get their double chocolate donuts and I can get my caramel latte. We are listening to Physik (the third in the Septimus Heap series) and really enjoying it. I will have to post a review soon.


All the animals survived (Ellie (the dog), Lapis and Sammie (the cats) and the 4 guinea pigs). Makes for interesting travel though. The cats really do not like the car, so they are in their carriers meowing off and on again. Luckily Ellie is a great traveler. She hung out between the boys just happy that she is going with us and not being left behind.

The last hour or so she decided that Kyle’s lap would be more comfortable. Kyle loved it and they looked so cute.

It actually looks like it will be cool this weekend, so we will have to play it by ear. One of the things that I love about summer is that we have no real schedule. Other then go the beach. I know, life is rough. It is homeschool day at the Jolly Roger Waterpark on Monday so we will probably hit that. And the boys can’t wait to get together with Jack.

Gotta go unpack some more. Or actually I really should head to bed…so I think that I will take Ellie out real quick and then hit the hay. I have to say that I enjoy our late night outings now that it is summer…much nicer now that it is warm. And especially down here overlooking the water.

Have I mentioned that I love summer?


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

  1. I told the kids yesterday that you wouldn’t be at the birthday party because you were leaving for the beach. The first thing they said was, “They get to get their henna tattoos!” What great memories they have. At some point in the last year, I told them about the henna tattoos and they’ve been begging ever since to get one.

    Enjoy the beach!
