A few weeks back we took a trip to Jacksonville, FL to meet with our RDI consultant for a re-evaluation and program update for Ben. We usually stay for a few days at the Navy Lodge at US Naval Station Mayport. It’s a perfect setup for us with a kitchenette and a beachfront view. Although it was mostly rainy and overcast while we were there, we couldn’t skip an afternoon digging in the sand and dipping our toes in the cold cold ocean. How cool is it that we can enjoy the beach in the middle of December? I tell you, it never gets old for this Midwestern grown girl, nor her South Dakotan husband. Oh. And the kids appear to love it, too.
