Getting Organized...again and again & our Beach Field Trip

So I did some organizing in the Living Room area to make the perfect "classroom" space. I moved somethings around once, twice and then we purchased a sectional couch for the room and now I have organized and moved things around again. It now looks like a disaster area. haha :) But that's okay.. My motto is

You can't make progress with a making a huge mess !

Anyway, we decided to take advantage of the cooler weather out (if you consider mid to upper 80s cooler) and packed up a picnic lunch, change of clothes for all and headed to the beach. Oh how I love Gulf Shores in the fall and winter. Although it technically isn't fall just yet, it surely was a super fantastic day. Cool breeze, high surf, sand and shells...oh and sun too. Can't forget the sun...lots of it. So we were sure we got in a big dose of Vitamin D from Mother Nature .

We waded in the surf. The girls were eventually knocked down by the high surf. Then we noticed a red flag flying. .. meaning high surf. So we kept close to the shoreline. We searched the beach for shells and other fun finds. The girls found many and some with holes in them that they want to use for stringing a necklace. After playing for an hour or 2 we washed off the sand, changed clothes and sat under one of the Pavillions for a nice picnic. PB&J's and Chicken salad. It was the best day ever, as quoted by Emily. And chiming in Ella states it wasn't the best day ever, it was the most awesome day ever.

So today we will do a few writing prompts, internet searching and science lessons with what we oberved while at the beach yesterday.
Other than shells, sand, sun and surf we saw:
Pelicans, Seagulls (and babies too), kite surfers, helicopters and learned about the different meanings of the flags (warnings).

I'm looking forward to our next adventure and outing coming up next week to Seward Farms-Corn Maze.
Until Next time,
Keep reading and reaching for the stars.
