We had a gloriously warm day in early November. And it happened to coincide with a teacher development day and the kids were out of school, so we headed to the beach with the Timothy’s. We stayed all day long, played with the tide as it went all the way out, the beach stretching longer and longer before us. We watched snails, caught crabs, searched for sand dollars.
I think spontaneous trips to the beach with my kids on eerily warm winter days will be a part of this stage of my life that I’ll miss most. It’s magic.
