I can't even think of a name for this post!

We are settling into life on Tybee and loving it!  We went and played Bingo Friday night at the American Legion.  The picture below is of Ellie (the counselor at my school's daughter), Colton, Rebecca (Ellie's cousin), Kaylee and West.  Kaylee and West are our neighbors on Tybee.  Their mom is a veterinarian.  Yes, Colton has full time residents on Tybee to play with:)

Then Colton had a soccer game Saturday morning.  Colton joined this team on his own.  I did not sign him up.  That is a story in itself.  But.... we were not planning on doing an organized team or anything for spring, but Colton "joined" them one day at practice and the coach asked him to join officially.  This was "all Colton" and I love it.  It is YMCA soccer, which is not as "cutthroat" or "competitive" as Rec. ball.

He is already making friends with some of the kids:)


And then, we spent Saturday on the beach with Ellie, Rebecca and Rebecca's mom.  Ellie and Colton have been in class together in first, second and third grade.

Ok, we were doing some chores after the soccer game.  Ellie and Rebecca came up to the house in their bikinis.  They asked if Colton could go to the beach with them.  I told Rod that I had to let him go.  (We were planning on going, just a little bit later.)  That would have been devastating for two girls to come ask him to go to the beach for the first time since we moved to our new place and I had told him no.  It would have broken his heart:)  And, look at the smile on his face below!

Ellie gave Colton a "spa mud treatment".  I could not have stood to have all of that sand and mud on me.

Life is good!
