When I told the kids that we were going, Abbey said, “Can we just go to the beach and that’s all.” They are also ready for some relaxation and to put away the day planner…. now that will last about three hours on the beach and she will be asking “Can we go look at souvenirs. Can we go drive go-karts.” It was also requested that we not wear matching cancer shirts or any matching attire. They have no appreciation or respect for consistency in pictures or scrapbooks. The kids want a break from “standing-out,” and with Eli doing so well, that’s pretty easy… well, as easy as it can be for a party of six. So, packing was a breeze when I didn’t have to hunt down six Eli shirts, six Incredibles shirts, six car show shirts. I just threw in the first four shirts of kid number one that I came across and the first four shorts of kid number one that I came across, and continued down the line. Boom, wow, I’m done (well, not exactly, I simplified for the sake of the prose). I am struggling a little with the packing because the weather looks up and down with a likely chance of rain. But, if it’s gonna rain on me, rain on me at the beach.

I hope to write to you next from the sandy white beaches of the Florida panhandle.
