Wanted to write something for this week's Theme Thursday, which is "Castle"
However, I am taking part in the NaNoWriMo again this year, and have been trying to keep my word count up. Still behind, but doing okay.
Here are some pics, at least.
This is from our 2005 vacation to York Beach, Maine.
Me and my two youngest, having fun building castles in the sand.
A better pic of the kids.
Amazing to me how much older they look today, four short years later.
The castles that came from our time in the sand.
I remember the end of one vacation there, sitting in the sand with the castles done, the prospect of heading home and leaving the beach behind for a year looming.
My kids were sad that their creations would be lost forever. I told them not to think of it that way. Think of the the castles as being dissolved back into the sand, patiently waiting for next year. When we returned, we could pull them back up, rebuilding them to stand in the sun once more.
It helped them smile and feel a little better, before the waves came and erased their artwork from the beach.
