He wasn't going to solve differential equations today, so he didn't miss much at preschool.

We hit the beach today for one last hurrah. It was awesome. Just me and my boys playing on the beach as if the summer hadn't ended so abruptly as it just did last week. We built a stellar sandcastle, walked on the jetty (one of the perks of no lifeguards!), and splashed in the water. After the beach, we walked on the boardwalk, ate some nice beachy treats, and played in an arcade until we ran out of quarters. All in all, it was super, duper, faux-summery fun. When we were leaving, I was a bit misty-eyed. I had tons of fun at the beach this year with my family. Maybe we'll head back down again before next summer, but we probably won't be able to sit on the beach and relax in the warm sun again. I always shed a little tear when I know that's the case. I love the beach and all the beachiness that goes with it. And I can see in Zeke that he feels the same. Cheers to a great summer of 2008. And personally, I think it was well worth it to let my Zekey-poo play hooky from school to send it off with a bang! That doesn't make me a bad mom, now, does it???? Too bad if it does. Priorities people, priorities....
