Tuesday was a bit cloudy, so we stuck around the house. I set up a Facebook account and researched online vendors of waterproof paper; we played a lot of tick tack toe on the drawing board, watched movies, and took a good nap! We played cards by using them as flash cards and talking about adding and subtracting them. We really try to focus on concentration skills and other preschool development activities on days like this.
We are so impressed by the operation, and the operator, we are featuring Ellie’s Sail Shop as this month’s community spotlight.
We snuck out on the flat in the late afternoon.
Thursday was sunny but windy. We practiced math exercises in the morning, then made our weekly trip to “story time” at the Dunedin Library. Gabe was happy to find his friend Leah there for the first time.
We hit the water around noon and got one fish to take the fly. The wind picked up and the clouds rolled in just in time to meet mommy at home after work.
We dropped Jim off mid-morning and picked up our buddy Dave at Mira Vista (a pocket park). We spent a few hours on the tarpon flat without seeing a single fish, so we ended up jumping overboard and just floated along with the boat, laughing and treading water. Gabe has been complaining a lot lately when he gets saltwater in his eyes. I don’t remember him being that discomforted by the saltiness of the water last summer.
Sunday, Meredith’s brother Nathan and his fiancée Ashley came down for a work trip. After the morning rain clouds departed we met them at their hotel for a swim. Later we ate pizza at Post Corner, a delicious family owned and operated restaurant in Clearwater.
