You know, I thought that once the kids were back in school I would have more time for updating this blog thing. But turns out I had work to do :D .
Tuesday was the first day back for the big kids. Kylie didn't want to go, Jake didn't want to go...but as soon as they saw their friends again, they were happy to be there. Kylie is the second tallest in her class! There is only one girl who is taller, and she is a year older than Kylie. The school was decorated with all sorts of balloons and streamers, and looked like a fun place to be. Sammy and I left them at school, and then we took Gramma to the fabric store. Sammy needs a fleece one piece, for the chilly walks to school in the morning. It's already around 6C when we leave for school...my gosh, it's getting chilly already. I saw geese flying south yesterday! Snow is right around the corner.
Wednesday I spent the day going through Kylie's closet and dresser. She has so many hand-me-downs and bargain finds that needed to be sorted (actually, if I had some sort of organizing system in place when I bought the clothes, I wouldn't have to spend so much time sorting them every fall...oh well). Then when Kylie got home from school, she tried a pile of clothes on. We made piles...donate, mend, stuff-in-dresser, stuff-in-attic...my gosh, that girl has a lot of clothes this year. She's so picky now, though. I wonder if she'll wear half the stuff in her dresser.
Thursday was early dismissal day. While Sammy napped, I hemmed Kylie's pants that were too long and made elastic waistbands in the pants that were too big in the waist. I love the elastic that you can buy with the buttonholes in it. I cut out the fleece snowsuit but I didn't get much sewn on it. After I picked up the kids, we went to Toys R Us to pick out birthday gifts for Sammy's birthday, which is this weekend. That evening, Jacob asked for a haircut! I don't know what got into him, the week before he told me he was never cutting that shaggy mop *ever*.
Friday...boring. Nothing happened LOL.
Saturday morning, Scott leaves early to go golfing. Jacob wakes up and remembers that he has a birthday party to go to TODAY that he got an invitation for YESTERDAY. How does that happen???? Maybe parents invite the kids extra late so that no one comes to the party so they have less mess to clean up??? I don't know. So we run to WalMart to pick up a gift. Actually, I usually have something stashed under my bed from the clearance section for just such an occasion, but this time I didn't have anything. Jacob is making a card. He hates making cards LOL.
This afternoon we are going to my sister's to see her brand-new puppy. He's a golden retriever, I can't wait to see him.
