Back to School Supplies!!!

Didn't school just get out? I know I feel like it did. I'm just getting use to sleeping late. However, have you looked in the stores? Hobby Lobby has Christmas out! All the other stores have the school supplies out! The stores have been putting them out since June! I know this because son number 2 works at Office Max and he has been doing the freight and spent 2 weeks working nights setting up all the school supply displays.

I decided to get my shopping done now and avoid the MOBS! Also, because of WDW I wanted this ugly task out of the way!

Want to see what the kids got? They were excited, and I'm sad to say that I'm pretty sure I'll have to make another trip, but I'm fairly good at figuring out what they need ahead of time and figuring out what the shared class supplies will be! I've been through this rodeo before!

School starts August 22, my lazy sleep in days will be coming to a halt. Oh how I love summer, sigh......

AJ is in heaven!!!

Can you tell what Amelia likes?!?

A calculator for pre-algerbra!

LOVE the name!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, we need duck tape! We have many different spirit days, and duck tape day is one of them! When we found patterned duck tape we were in heaven, but when we found "Funky Flamingo" we were REALLY Happy :-)

And, I was a good Mom, I made a special trip to Target just for Star Wars stuff for AJ. I buy most of my supplies at Office Max. Any discount helps at this time of year!

Enjoying the last days of summer while I can! Later....

The Blackmobil and Robin!

Kevin and I took the van in to make an appointment to be repaired. It had been giving us more problems and getting up there in mileage. Kev said, lets looks at what is on the lot just for fun!! This is what we found:

This van was used like the previous Honda, but it is 1 year newer and has 20,000 less miles than the white van I had! It also has a GPS system and a backup camera! So, next time there is a wasp in the car and Amelia freaks out I won't back up into a brick wall!! Hopefully :-))

Thus, meet Robin:

Since Kevin nicknamed the car the Blackmobil, I nicknamed the GPS Robin!!! I thought it was appropriate! Robin talks to me too! Pretty cool, you can tell I'm easily amused!

It is difficult getting use to looking for a black van in a parking lot though after having a white van for 4 years!
