This is where the kids spent the majority of their summer week days...

Spent the weekend in one of our favorite places on earth, Wells, ME. Love the weekends we get to spend at this perfect beach. I can tell my kids grew up here because cold water doesn't bother them and they spend the whole day in the water regardless of the water temp. And the plus is the time we get to spend with our good friends the Shumways.
Richard worked tirelessly this summer at the pool learning to tread water and swim the length of the pool doing the crawl stroke. 2 minutes is a long time to tread water, and the length of the pool seemed daunting to him (even though he was a strong enough swimmer). After many tears and practices at the pool, he did it! He needed to pass this swim test to be allowed to attend sailing camp. Since the camp is free I wasn't too worried if he couldn't pull it off, but I knew he would enjoy himself. He passed the test and had a blast at camp. It was called Harbor Explorers so not only did he sail in the harbor, they went fishing with rods and crabbing with pots. We will certainly do more weeks of this camp next year.
