We have been having waaayyy too much fun at the beach these last couple of days and with compulsory nanna naps after lunch it has felt like a perfect staycation if I ever did have one!
What did happen today was way more news worthy. Something I have been secretly holding out to see since she was born 5 years ago…Ella’s first proper surf on a big girl board, and she mastered it!
I am still a little bit shocked at how easy she made it look. Usually it has been in Ella’s nature to, well, let’s just say, lacks a little tenacity….BUT I think it’s because she hasn’t really found something she has truly enjoyed doing…until today!
I was just standing on the sidelines with Summer while Andrew was doing all the guiding onto waves. The look on her face when she nailed a good wave with a thumbs up bought a tear to my eyes and just one of those moments that is etched in my mind forever!
