He is showing us one of his treasures. He didn't care what kind of seashell it was, and he didn't care if it was broken........he had a bucket, he was at the beach and he was hunting for shells. He was his usual cautious self when we first arrived. He told me that he needed boots to go into the water. After I convinced him that it would be okay to get his feet wet, he very tentatively went ankle-deep.
He probably would have been very content to just play on the water's edge all day. Water, a bucket and seashells.......what more could a three year old ask for!?
Oh, I guess it could be an island. Idol Island. (We told him it was an island and all he could remember was idol. So it became Idol Island) This is what he called it. His uncle carried him out and he would have been very content out there for a few hours as well, but the tide came in. And was washing it away. So he cried and cried and came back to the shore. Very, very unwillingly. The only way we could get him to stop crying was to tell him that it would come back again one day and he could come back and see it. Very disconcerting, and he really didn't understand why the tide would come and wash away his fun.
We saw one of the beautiful eagles in the tree again. I am always so awestruck when I see the eagles at the beach. #3 was very impressed as well. #4 tells me that he sees them at work at the golf course every day and seems rather nonchalant......but he did tell me that he is also impressed.
He loves to play baseball! And is pretty good at it too. He is very hard on himself and thinks that he should hit the ball every single time, but he does really well for only being three. I have always thought that he has very good hand-eye coordination.
Here comes the ball!
And there it goes!
Even Bosco was watching.
Auntie L bought Sweetheart some hair clips last week, so she has been wearing one every day since she got them. Isn't she cute?
Looking a little bit grumpy, but don't you just love the hair bow? She has one to match every outfit.
