Beach fun and some new photos

Jake's class walked to the beach with another first grade class for their end-of-year party. The school is in between the highways (the beach road and the main highway here), so the walk is not too long. They played putt putt and listened to the lifeguards speak about beach and water safety, but mainly they played in the sand. The kids had a lot of fun. Ok, so did I.

They just loved playing under the lifeguard stand. Isn't it great how the lifeguards still watched the beach and water even though all those kids were just under them squeeling and laughing?

They started out having a water balloon toss. The other class wore green shirts, our class wore yellow shirts. I thought it was so funny how most of the other class kept on their shirts while our class ran around in their swimsuits.

It quickly turned into a water balloon fight with parents, teachers, and the children.

I took this picture before the kids arrived. It looked a little overcast and had a great breeze. It later turned very hot with no breeze. The kids had fun anyway and we made sure to put sunscreen on them.

That's so wonderful that the school is close enough to walk to the beach!! My elementary was near a roller rink, so our class parties were usually roller
