Back to School

All three of my little rascals headed off to school this year.

Ethan into third grade

which he likes except for, you know, the school work.

Joanna into kindergarten

I don't know if there has ever been another little girl so ready and eager to be in kindergarten.

The two of them get to ride their bikes together in the morning.  Ethan is such a great older brother, helping Jo with her bike lock and making sure she gets to class.

My baby is somehow old enough to go to preschool.  Ginny is taking over Joanna's spot in Mrs. Kent's class.

Is there anything sweeter?

Oregon Part 2, The Woods

Before starting our long drive home from the Howard camping trip in Oregon, we stopped to do a hike through a beautiful forest and estuary at Coos Bay.

It was a wonderful way to end a wonderful trip.

Oregon Part 2, The Beach

From where we camped with the Howard family in Oregon it was a short jaunt to the beach at Bullards Bay state Park close to where the Coquille river flows into the ocean with the Coquille River Lighthouse at it's mouth.
