making a list and checking it twice!

Today I decided to take the girls and get their school suppiles while there was a good supply of them. In the past I have thought I was heading out early but always found myself having to go to three or four different stores to get them all. We did pretty well on finding everything we needed at Target and only need two items to complete the list for both our Kindergartener and 4th grader. The summer started off dragging a bit but has realy picked up steam. The girls only have four weeks left of their vacation.

Swim team is now over and not much going on on a daily basis. I have to get them signed up for their EXTRAS in the next few weeks but and trying to figure out what days and times to put them in their activities. Maci wants to do dance agian and Mackenzi really wants to ry out year round swim but is quite a busy schedule for a third grader. I think they practice three night a week and that doesn't include the meets she will compete in. Woah I'm exhausted thinking about taxiing them around when all this begins.

Mackenzi and Maci are planning a trip to see Grammy and Poppy for a few days soon but other than that we are just going day to day until school starts. We are still on the hunt for the perfect job and place to raise our girls, so that will consume most weekends until they head back to class. We wanted to take a little mini vacation down to Corpus Christi to the beach. Hopefully we won't run out of time but if we do I guess we can just go on a weekend after school starts. It's not like it will be cold anytime soon.

Do your kids love school supply shopping? It used to be one of my favorite things to do. I loved coming home and organizing my supplies. Silly, but true. Glad you all had fun in Utah. I sent Jenny a package today. Will you check her doorstep while she's gone to see if it comes. Thanks!

I'll be on the lookout for the package. The girls love getting their supplies. I loved it to as a kid too and it was fun seeing them excited about getting their's yesterday.
We had fun on our trip but wish you could have come along. We, for sure, are going to have to be better at keeping in touch with everyone and taking trips each year, even if it is just to the Academy meeting.

A package for me?? How exciting. You made school supply shopping look so fun. I wish my trip was that exciting yesterday. I felt it was a bit painful with all the kiddos and glad its over!

Whitney picked out that same cute brown polka-dotted folder. I love school supplies and think it's so lucky that they make such cute stuff these days.
