This is how it went.
Me: Hey! Look what I found!
Lucas: What is that?
Me: A cool rock.
Me: Look what I found!
Siena: What is that?
Me: A cool rock. Can you smile? I can see you through the holes…
Me: Look what I found now!
To myself: This is cool too.
Me: I can see you through the hole! Can you see me?
Mark: mmm…. yes.
To myself: I can still see you. I love it!
To myself: This is cool! I can focus on Siena.
…or on the seaweed tube.
… on the waves…
or on the water and the foam. I love it!
Me: Can you guys smile? It looks cool!
Lucas: Can you really see us through the hole?
Me: Yes! It’s really cool! (Can you tell I’ve been excited this whole walk about my new discoveries?)
Siena: You have said ‘cool’ a lot of times. Are you really taking all these pictures? Oh no… are you going to put these photos on the blog?
Me: Can I?
Siena and Lucas: Yes, if you want to… but really?
Mark: Mmm…. Yeah, Mamá is going to post these. Let’s see. I bet she does.
Me: Yes I am. (Click.) (Publish.)
