Homeschool Beach Conference

We had a great time at Fort Fisher Aquarium on Kure Beach. This island was so beautiful when you got to the end of it. It's all protected with the aquarium and a Civil War Museum. There was a battle fought right there on the beach. Things got a little crazy by the end of that day and I forgot to get pics of the Civil War stuff.

We went to Wilmington for a Homeschool Conference with the Maxwell Family and it was fantastic. The girls got a picture taken with Sarah Maxwell who writes the Moody Family books. They were so excited! They were also excited because the next day when we checked out the Maxwell's Blog there was a picure of them with Sarah.

We went to Wrightsville Beach and walked the beach and played in the tide pools and ocean a little. The temp. was only 67 but the water was warm. Do you see the little starfish? That is the first one we've seen in North Carolina.

I just love how they are holding just melts the heart!
