These Florida days have offered time for family and play. The Hobbit is over, and once again I found myself spacing out or reading a book of my own to pass the time.
All of my kids can now say they’ve seen the ocean, and it feels like part of my job as a parent is complete. The Atlantic side’s waves are much stronger than the Gulf. It made me nervous to watch them crash and crash and crash and crash continuously.
Its amazing how quickly small discomforts can start compounding. After traveling one and a half car days to get there, it was a welcome relief for all to get out and get in.
