Days like today remind me just how much.
Our second oldest was invited to a birthday party for one of his classmates.
The invitation included siblings.
So, when we found out that the DH had the day off, we headed to the beach.
It was an hour drive, door to door.
It's not our first Texas beach trip, but the ELs still seemed pleasantly surprised at just how close we really are.
I won't speak for my husband, but I am admittedly a beach snob. Southern California ruined me for our local Texas beaches. I love beautiful sand, beaches where there are no cars, and the sweet smell of the ocean.
But, in spite of my snobbishness, we went and had a great time.
Sometimes we have to let go of our preconceived notions about how we think things should be and live in the way they are.
