Ah, yes-the return to school days has come! The end of the summer campouts, endless video games, homemade icecream and baseball games. Knowing all this, my boys were still excited to see the first day of school. They were well prepared-new shoes, backpacks, and hair cuts all jumped started their enthusiasom. Logan most excited that in first grade you get THREE recesses and Noah most excited to play basketball this year. As for me, just excited to get back into some sort of routine!

First day of school-Noah was a great big brother and made sure Logan found his way around on the 'big' playground! After thier first day, Logan said "first grade rocks!" and Noah said " Its waaay better then 4th grade!" We'll check back in a few weeks and see if anything has changed!!

There are mountain people and there are ocean people. Luckly, for our boys they have one of each for a parent! (that is why we are content to live in fresno..halfway between both!) I am the ocean lover. As soon as we are near the ocean, I just have to open the window and smell that salty, fishy air to feel at peace. I love everything about the ocean and do my part to share that with the kids. Matt likes the ocean, but as soon as he smells the ocean, all he can think of is sand in his shorts and sticky seaweed. He is the mountain man. He feels at peace with the smell of pine trees. I like the pine trees, but as soon as I smell them I know im in for sticky pinecones and dirty toes! For this was all ocean baby!!

I think I can turn them into ocean kids yet!

There is nothing quite as fun as being chased by the waves! You have to zoom in to see the smile on those faces..its awesome!

It just doesnt get any better then this for boys and the ocean!
