Back from the Beach...

Well, I got a week at the beach this year, and I was so glad I got to go. I spent time with my niece, Riley. We had a good time. I don't really get to see her all that often, but we got to spend a lot of quality time together. Our schedule was really nice:

Wake up
Eat breakfast
Ride bike to beach
Walk on the beach, play in the surf
Ride bike back home
Play tennis (or laugh trying)
Swim in the pool
Go home and eat lunch
Ride bike back to beach
Swim, play games, relax, read
Ride back home
Change, shower
Cocktail hour
Ride bike to Boardwalk
Eat Ice Cream
Ride bike back home
Go to bed

Repeat 7 times.

That's a schedule I can deal with. It's always a little hard for me to leave the beach. It's one of my most favorite places. We've been going to Bethany Beach since I was 7th grade, and it's just such a part of our family traditions. The years I haven't been able to go has been heartbreaking. I'm always longing for the beach. I love love love the beach.

One of the cool things I learned to do at the beach this year was make hats. My mom showed me a knitting pattern and I actually made one! It didn't even take that long. Last night I made a second one. They turned out really nicely. I had no idea I could do that.... I thought it would be really hard to figure out. I'll have to post pictures later. I plan on making one for everyone this winter. Merry Christmas!!

We also did a little wedding planning. BUT, I won't totally bore you with that. Except these few things:

I've decided to make 1000 cranes for decorations (to be determined how exactly)
We're planning on have a signature drink
Jarle's list is so much bigger than my invite list...
It will be outside

That's about it so far.

And now school is just around the corner, and I'm busy trying to figure out what to teach to elementary students in 2 schools. Trying to figure out what my schedule is... and a little nervous that I'll have 2 principals to deal with...

Oh well, work has to happen at some point, it's just a matter of not thinking about it as work. And with all the other things going on, it might be that work becomes the least of my worries...


Ok, enough for now. More to come.
