It's warm grab the beach bag!
The great thing about homeschooling is knowing the temperature will be over 80 on a Thursday and being able to declare it a beach day. It's been so cold and rainy this spring that we were all excited for a touch of summer. We drove the hour to our favorite sand beach and found it totally empty. We were pleasantly surprised that the temperature held at the shore. It's quite common to have it be 20 degrees cooler at the shore then in town.
The wind was perfect for our kite, and the sand felt great on our toes. Our youngest even took his ceremonial first dip in the freezing cold lake. As we collapsed on our porch in the evening to watch some thunderstorms, we decided any day that left us with sand in out toes is a good day.
