9/11

It’s on everyone’s mind. I remember it being one of our first days of homeschooling.  Dan was just-turned 8, Ian and Tim were 6 and Andy was 17 months old.  My mom called and asked if I had the tv on.  I didn’t.  I was a new homeschooler, for goodness sakes.  But, I turned on the tv.  And we watched.  I remember scribbling a scavenger hunt for the boys – to go outside and find all of these things before you came back into the house. And, they did.  They remember very little of 9/11/01.  I, like so many people, watched in horror. And watched and watched and watched.  You could not get away from it.  I remember consciously avoiding going online that day and I’m glad I did that.  

The next day, I had no clue what to do.  I knew I could not sit there watching tv all day.  I packed all the boys up and we went to the beach, the same beach mentioned in the post below.  We were the only people there.  Just a few days ago, I found this picture of Andy on the beach on 9/12/01.  I LOVE this picture. It says so much to me and reminds me of so much every time I look at it.  I cannot believe I lost track of it.  Won’t happen again
