Denise Williams and I are teaching a Manners Co-op Class for our Homeschool group. Today was the first class. We did a "puppet show" and lesson using different dinosaurs. Denise had told me she would do the cutting out, but the day she was here to plan, our internet service was down, so I couldn't print them out. I ended up copying them all and cutting them out.
I did not stop to think how many dinosaurs that was!!! We had 26 kids sign up and each kid got 9 dinosaurs!! :O It was taking f.or.e.v.e.r. to get them all cut out.
I just had to share this picture of my hard working guys. While watching football and Nascar on Saturday, they made a HUGE dent in the stack....they are the best!! :)
Sunday after church we came home, Dan did a little school work and then we headed down to the beach. We had not been there, even ONCE yet this summer....and it's only 75 minutes away!!
We went to my favorite spot....St. Andrews State Park!
On this side of the rocks, the water doesn't get much deeper than your shoulders, most places only waist high, so you don't have to worry about rip currents. (But you also don't have waves to ride) It is a nice safe place to play and generally not very full of people....at least in the late afternoon.
There were lots of seagulls around since some people on the shore were feeding them! :P
When we sat down to eat supper, they all gathered around, looking expectantly at our food!! :D
And see the bossy one in the middle trying to be greedy and chase all his buddies away!?? Heehee!
There was some type of egret over by the rocks. It blends in so well that you can hardly notice it.
Danny climbing on the rocks. Tamara went to join him too but they weren't up there long and two raccoons came running out and scared them. They thought the raccoons were trying to chase them away. I think they are residents in those rocks since we see them every time we are there! :)
The sun was going down over the dune between the shallow bay part where we were and the ocean side.
After eating our supper, we went to the ocean side. The waves were pretty high and Dan and Danny discovered there was a nice strong rip current, so we didn't stay in the water too long.
The yellow flag was for Medium Hazard- Moderate surf or current.
The purple flag was for Dangerous Marine Life. Not sure if it was sharks or jellyfish or sting rays.
We did see one jellyfish on the beach, and we heard someone say they saw a sting ray in the shallow part, but that was the extent of it.
It was a most beautiful night to be out on the beach! The sunset was brilliant and the moon was coming up, so full and bright!
There were many, many shells on the beach. More than I ever saw there before!! "They" say that TS Lee washed them up.
Love my family!! <3
More pics of the moon....
A family of shadows.... :)
2 guys were out surfing.....
And people were waiting to get a good shot. :)
Mine got a little blurry.....
The waves crashing, sounded so beautiful. I could have slept there! :)
Goodbye sun, see you tomorrow! :)
The next few pics need no captions....
I loved the way the sun was making streaks in the sky well after it went below the horizon!!
A lovely day with my family was ended with a stop at DQ!! Mmmmm!!
