Sand Through My Toes

My big adventure in the sand

Back to the Sand…..

and not the sand that allows for basking in the sun or frolicking in the crystal clear blue waters (with water shoes on, of course!).  Seventeen days pass by so quickly yet when I was preparing to leave, seventeen days seemed to drag on and on….but then again, I guess that happens when you are so excited to get somewhere and then apprehensive to leave.  Heading back with fantastic memories of fun times with family and friends.  Albeit to short, and not enough time to see everyone, it was great to have the chance to chat for a moment, have a drink to catch up, and/or a bite to eat with a beverage :-), and best of all, to spend quality family time with my parents, siblings, nieces and nephews. Although we didn’t make it to a Waffle House, Dairy Queen, or to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, there were plenty of laughs, ball games, skate board riding, goofing around, shopping, hanging out at the pool, and eating delicious meals. Shrimp/Scallop Dinner   Enjoying Shrimp Pasta, Shrimp, Scallops, and a cold beer with Dad and Dee.  Off to the airport….. 

Okay, best not to poke your niece, I get it now!!

    So wonderful to see the family. Your dad looks great. He has not changed much . I would still recognize him anywhere. Tracy’s kids are so cute and so tall. I guess that is not much of a shock. Glad you had a nice time off.. Stay safe and enjoy your life experience teaching everyone English. Love you so . Miss Jade
