To those of you who have emailed me within the last month, I'm sorry for my lack of response. The cultural exchange emails have gotten precedence, and I've not answered most other emails...there's just not enough time.
A lot of you have requested that I post pics of the cultural exchange box that I received, and Julie has given me permission to do so. Since, I'm not giving the girls the packages yet (it's a large part of their Christmas), I have to be sneaky about unpacking and photographing everything. I planned to do it while they napped this afternoon, but I fell asleep with them...maybe tomorrow :)
Here are some pics from our wonderful 2 weeks at the beach...
We always tie-dye while at the beach, and the girls are SO proud of their shirts!
My "old time" girl wore her mob cap on the beach. She so silly :)
2 girls and their kites. Getting both of their kites flying at the same time and running with them on the beach was one of my favorite moments.
I was very pleased with the pics from our beach photo shoot.
We went on kayaking adventures during our 1st beach week. At one point we were almost surrounded by a pod of dolphins. Lucky O(5) was even closer to them than we were, and she said that she loved seeing the calf with it's mama. She said she felt like she was in a dream. I loved hearing them blow...so cool.
