Week 42: (October 21st-27th): Before the Storm

Posted on

A bit late posting week 42 due to Hurricane Sandy. The kids and I took off for Maine the day after these pictures were taken. Jeff stayed behind as duty was calling. Our part of Long Island faired well during the storm, but there places even 30 minutes away that were hit hard.

The Friday before Sandy came a-roaring to the East Coast, Liam and I dropped Caroline off at preschool and a Starbucks treat off to Jeff before heading to the beach. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny fall morning. Exactly what you would think of when hearing the phrase “the calm before the storm.” We followed fresh truck tracks for “miles” and found a “fort” made of sticks. A little bit of digging in the sand and pretending to be “pare-in-thol-o-gists” looking for dinosaurs made for a memorable morning with my little guy.

There comes a time in every rightly-constructed boy’s life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.

  1. Those are great pictures and it looked like Liam really enjoyed himself while poor Caroline was stuck in school 🙂 Glad to here everything at your house fared well. Things in Leonardton were good also.

  2. Don’t worry about “poor Caroline” stuck at school 🙂 She barely wants to leave most days! Glad to see no troubles at your house due to the storm!
