making them go to the beach
Friday after school I packed up the kids for a beach afternoon. I did this last week too, wanting to take advantage of the sunshine, but this week more to give Eric some time to rest since he was home sick. Laine and Sommer were happy about it. Ridge was quite upset that I was taking away his precious Wii time that starts on Friday after school.
We saw a train with 98 cars. That cheered Ridge's mood a bit.
Last week the boys explored together and pretended together but Ridge was in no such mood this week. He spent the majority of his time digging a huge hole and we left him alone. Once the hole was built he sat in it a while and dug some more. Later Cannon and the girls took over residency of the pit.
Ridge dug away his bad mood and ended the day splashing in the freezing water and chasing the kids with seaweed.
His mischief face reminded me so much of Calivn from Calvin and Hobbes. He was in a good mood by the time we left, especially since we were stopping at Little Caesars on the way home for Friday night pizza.
Cannon led the girls in a drum circle, putting Ridge's pit to good use. They brought their instruments home.
