Blogs from Pawleys Island, South Carolina, United States, North America


The summer is nearing a close over here in North Carolina, and the kids had their first day back to school today! They are in the two-year-old class and the four-year-old class at the local preschool and they love it! Yet, before we went back to school and officially welcomed in the fall season, we were able to squeeze in one last beach trip as a family!
