Making Friends

Today was the weekly (during the Summer) beach/park day for our local homeschool group and it was our first chance to meet people. We didn't realize today was a beach day since we were going to the park but it was. Oh well, it just meant I had less to pack up. The kids were a little bummed but did fine not going out too far and rolling up their shorts. They found lots of seashells, a few sand dollars (those were living so I made them put them back), and learned what skimboarding is and that seaweed stinks. Technically I don't think this is considered a beach since it is on Puget Sound and not on the (for reals) ocean but whatev (I could be wrong, but that is what Tug was told by one Washington dude). Christine et al, thanks for coming, it was great meeting you...the kids and I are anxiously awaiting next week!

11 people are laughing with me:

Cute picture too! It's nice seeing the kiddos, even if it is just through pictures.

And you're off! Nice jumping right in to a group. Hope you meet some great new people.

Auntie Nee said...

That looks like it was fun. Hope it was and hope you meet some great people.

why did renee copy my comment?

Regina said...

she didnt. i didnt know you had copyrighted using 'meet', 'some', 'great', and 'people'. i will send out an APB.

The Wades said...

you are defending her outright plagerism? i guess that's a nice sister/mean sis-in-law for you. ;)

Regina said...

i just call it like i see it. pretty common words in use if you ask me. tj didnt complain that renee said 'that looks like it was fun' while she wrote 'looks like fun'...just kinda normal, everyday sentences being used here-no need to think someone is trying to copy you. maybe she honestly does, like you, hope i meet some great people. maybe you copied her thought.

but i will be sure to send renee an email asking her to use entirely different words from your own in all future comments. ;)

i won't provide the material--no need to bother with the email. geez, learn to take a joke. geez! combative author. geez!

Christine said...

Regina, as you know we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and your children.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow and we really will be at a park!

is it okay to say glad you're already having fun and meeting new peeps?? or is that getting in the middle of a family squabble? :)
