We Made It!

To Panama City Beach!  Woo-Hoo!!

When we arrived, it was a little hazy outside and thundering, so we lounged around for a bit and threw a pizza into the oven.

After a quick lunch, we enjoyed some time on the beach where we dodged the seaweed and collected some really neat seashells.

We noticed a big commotion a little ways down, so we headed over to check it out.  We had just missed about 75 sea turtles hatching and crawling to the water.  But, we made it over there in time to see the scientists taking out the shells from the nest and charting all their observations.  It was pretty neat.

Of course, P's tractors made the trip and have already got some diggin' action in the sand.

After sunset, we headed to the pool area where P perfected his swimming skills and Daddy practiced his "toss-Perry-high-to-the-sky" skills.  Perry's cackle was just adorable.  He loves his Daddy SO much!

Then, about 9:00, we headed back up to the room and I noticed that I had a missed call from a number I didn't recognize on my phone.  So... I checked my voicemail... and IT WAS A JOB OFFER!!!  For a position that I didn't even interview for!  At my church's Christian school!  Where my best friend just got a job!  For FIRST grade!!!  Three minutes from my house!

So, I called back- 

And happily accepted!!  What crazy, good, unexpected news!  Thank you God for being SO awesome like that.  And lining up the coolest details.  I'm SO excited about this new adventure!
