As a teacher, one's days are numbered for summer vacation. In between 6 sessions of training, curriculum meetings, Promethean Board Training, Mentor Training, and Camp Invention, we FINALLY squeezed in a last romp to South Carolina's Grand Strand this final week before having to return to teacher workdays next Wednesday. It has been a FABULOUS time. Our oldest is on a cruise with his mom's family, so it has been just the 3 of us. However, the 5 year old has been enough for the 2 of us. In just a few days we've done so much. And even though my parents' beach place is one we come to often, we rarely go beyond the circle of convenient places nearby. We've played Putt-Putt, went to the Ripley's Aquarium, spent time by the Barefoot Resort Pool with friends, went to restaurants we never venture (and they were good!) and all the time never minding to a schedule!! It's been wonderful! Here are just a few pics to enjoy!
