Back to school and Other Stuff

I’m here!  I’m here!  I might float away, so if I pass by you, kindly stick out an arm and help a gurl out.

It seems like SE GA has gotten nothing but rain these past few weeks.  And we feel it!  We see it!  We’ve got flooding – but thankfully, nothing traumatic.  Just annoying.

Yesterday, was the first day back from Spring Break.  Now we start the countdown until the end of school: 6 more weeks.  We all know it’ll be here before we know it but it seems like such a long time anyway.  And of course we all know that the summer is going to speed by.

Remember last Wednesday’s What-in-the-World-is that?  It was a small dinosaur that, when placed in water, grew 10 times it’s original size.  That dinosaur stayed in the water for over a week.  It just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger until the head was out of the cup!  Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of it.  But believe me, it’s huge!

I had told y’all last week that I planned on taking the kiddos to the beach.  Well!  That was an adventure in and of itself.  Let me give you a Cliff Notes version:

  • I got lost – twice
  • The road to the beach was closed.  (I found out yesterday that there was an alternate way to get to the beach.)
  • The kids and I spent 4 1/2 hours in the car and never once stepped foot on a beach! (According to Google Maps, the beach was 1 hr and 45 min away).

Baby Gurl (in all her wisdom) made me nail down a future date when we could go to the beach again – before I even stepped out of the car!  Smart girl.  Hopefully, in the future, I’ll have pictures.

But for now – no go.  So sorry.

In the future, (before the beach), I plan on posting about Special Olympics, a special field trip with The Man Beast and Baby Gurl and a certain Boy’s 5th Grade Graduation.

Stay tuned…

    • Are you a little bird in my car? You are absolutely right – the kids have *not* let dear ol’ mom live this one down. LOL
