Country Living...Island Dreaming

August 17, 2012

Keeping Busy in August

School starts around here the first week of September
so we still have plenty of days to fill with activities.

We spent this past weekend at the beach.
The water was perfect for swimming
and was also great to cool off in
as we played some serious games of catch
with the velcro ball and paddles.

At sunset, we watched some families fishing.
We just missed them catching some baby sharks!
They had to throw them back in
 but we saw their pictures.
Needless to say, the kids were thrilled!

When we came home,
we spent an afternoon at a pottery painting studio.
My younger son painted a crazy looking dragon.

My older son wanted to be ready for Halloween
so he painted the Jack-o-lantern.

Here are the masterpieces.
We have to wait two weeks to pick them up though.

This week, we also
spent several evenings shooting hoops in the driveway.

And the boys spent each morning at golf camp.
My 8 year old has quite a swing already
and is really loving the game!
My 6 year old is pretty good too,
but he mostly loved the snack breaks!

Before we know it,
they will be playing with Daddy!
They just grow up too fast!

Now it's time for another weekend!

What have you been up to?

  1. Fun fun. That is so nice that your boys are learning golf early. My dad taught us early and then I didn't keep up with it and then picked it back up in my forties and now don't play again.

  2. Looks like a great summer you are all having, Shelley! Lots of fun memories to write about when your boys go back to school :) My kids don't go back until after Labor Day too….so a little more time for fun in the sun. PS your photos are great - the sky at the beach is crazy beautiful!

    Hope you have a great weekend - thanks for sharing your summer fun!
