You can tell it's Summer Vacation when...

...the wii is on in the morning.  Usually wii is an incentive/reward for early completion of schoolwork in the we have to figure out how much wii will be played during the summer.  Another new thing:  Dominik is awake during the past, the older boys play while he's napping.  Since we only have two controllers, Dominik held one controller and Lukas operated the num-chuck.  Lukas wasn't too happy with that at the beginning, but he warmed up to it after a while.

You can also tell that it's summer vacation because we went to the beach!

Tom, Natalie and Konrad waiting for the waves to come in.

Dominik and Lukas playing in the sand.

Natalie giving back sand to the ocean.

Dominik doesn't like the waves so much, but loves the sand!

Natalie says, "I found a feather!"

Konrad and Dominik making wet sand.

Lukas made a friend at the beach and they played in the waves for quite some time.  Here's Lukas with seaweed that he wanted to save to decorate a sandcastle.

Can't make enough wet sand!

Here's Lukas with the tiny sandcastle he made right before we left...not enough time, really, after all the playing in the waves he did.

It was perfect beach weather...not too hot and not too cold!  The beginning of a perfect summer!
