Wonderful children from ALL over!

On my first couple of days on the Market Street Beach, I have had the pleasure of meeting and teaching some wonderful children from ALL over!

Unfortunately, my camera wasn’t working the first day, to capture:

Hanna, 7 and her brother Sebastian, 4, from Switzerland

Sylvan, 6 1/2, and his sister Elena, 3 1/2, from Eugene, Oregon.  (Sylvan said they flew AND drove here!)

These 4 children above are visiting their (very young and vibrant!) great grandparents, Dottie and Sam Foster

I also taught 4 school friends:  Anna, Emma, Alexa, and Avery – all 8 (Emma is the oldest, turning 9 soon) from Baltimore, MD

I’m counting the days till August and September

When I leave the beach in the fall, it seems like an eternity till I get back in August. I am planning to get there late in the day, on August 1.

It takes awhile to unpack, and get my 3 little birds situated in their cage, dig out all the buckets, shovels, and molds – but I’ll be there!

I hope to see you there!

Packing up, to leave the beach –

It’s always sad to gather up all my sand tools and molds, and store them away until next summer.  But the weather has made it easy for me to leave – it’s downright chilly!  Rain and wind came along this past Thursday, and it hasn’t gotten any better since! 

I will probably check in here every now and then, and let you know what I’m up to! 

I’d love to keep in touch with all of you – send me a note <3

All my company had gone home, and I walked up to the beach, and built this castle (always makes me happy to build something!)

working in the sand helps to sweep away sad and lonely feelings <3
