fernandina beach amelia island
yes, we start school on monday….yes, this is public school. don’t ask, i don’t know why, but here in the south, they go back to school early august, the hottest month of the year.
now the kids still get 2 months off for summer break which is fantastic and we definitely made the most of it but boy, it’s hard to get back into the swing of things when it’s 100 degrees outside and the pools are all still open. personally, i liked starting school after labor day when i was growing up in new york city.
so before the kids return to their uniforms, daily homework, over-scheduled lives, i took them along with good friends on a quick beach trip to amelia island to play in the sand. we had a blast.
cheers to my sweet 3rd grader and kookie 1st grader. hope it’s another great year at school!
