Hoots principal invited us to go surfing today. He has a very cool surfer head master. We love the beach but we've never attempted surfing. Last year Hoot was viciously attacked by a sea lice (a tiny jelly fish creature) in his most sensitive area so we hadn't talked about ocean sports since that event. He did enter the ocean earlier this year, but only for a breif time. When Hoot heard that it would be with the head of school and his WAY cool older sons (9 and 10 years old) he was sold. We got up early and packed up the truck Galveston bound. Hoot is like his dear old mom in many ways but he really inherited my stellar athletic abilities (or lack thereof). After a couple frustrating hours the following events took place. If everybody had an ocean across the USA... Then everybody'd be surfin, like Californi-A A bushy bushy blonde hairdo.... surfin' USA! The water looks shallow here, but it wasn't. He rode it all the way in!! Tell the teacher were surfin', surfin' USA!! WIPE OUT!! I don't usually go in the water, but i was so excited to capture these photos. I have tiny bites all over my legs. I'm certian it's a flesh eating bacteria. I've bathed and may spray myself down with lysol or windex... they kill everything.
