This morning as we were having our usual wake up cuddle in the ‘big bed’, Grae poked her head through the curtains, turned to me with big eyes, and exclaimed, “Mama, it’s a SUNNY day today!” Then she immediately asked to go to the beach. I explained that it was Thursday morning, which is our usual Strong Start day, then let her know that she could make the decision. She thought about it a moment and said, “Mama, we go to the beach instead of school. We walk…. We play… We see birdies… We see the ocean… aaaaaand… we get hot drinks!” So the beach it was.
Some days are just too beautiful to spend indoors, even if it is at school… (Shhh… Don’t tell.)
