No, I don’t mean ‘summer vacation’. Since we homeschool, we don’t run on the typical ‘school schedule’, so I don’t worry about back to school and all that stuff. What I really didn’t want to end was our family vacation to the Oregon Coast. (We always go in September, to avoid the crazy summer crowds). We just got back Friday night (I know, I know, it’s already Monday), and I’m wishing we were still there. We spent the last week in ‘our house’, a little vacation home away from home, in Nehalem. We took our boat, so the big boys went crabbing every day and me and the littles went to the beach. We found a ton of agates and shells, and even some whole (intact) sand dollars. It was fantastic!!! Wednesday, I took all 5 kids to Seaside, to the aquarium (where we fed the cutest seals ever!), and the Carousel, and of course, to the Candy Man for some ice cream and salt water taffy. It really was a little slice of heaven…now, it’s back to the house, school, chores, cleaning, blah, blah, blah. Although, I must admit, part of me is glad to be home, but I think most of me wishes we were still at the beach.

Before we left, I worked really hard to frost more of the jars (non-Mason types), but I just didn’t get a chance to share them with you, so after school today, I’ll post more pictures, so you can see how other types of jars turned out!
I hope you are having a great Monday! Thank you for stopping by. :)
