Just a few brief updates for ya, cause I know you are dying to know.........
Allyson has never been one for a simple paint job. I remember when she was like four she would beg for me to paint every nail a different color. She just came wired this way. I think it's cool.
Dan calls her punky brewster. She has no idea who he is talking about- which makes us really old.
And to cover those babies up- I present her new school shoes. No simple pair of nice supportive New Balance here.
I took Sam shopping for a few back to school items- since all of his jeans won't button and hit him just under the knees.
I discovered that he has partially graduated to the older boy section. The one ALL.THE.WAY.ACROSS.THE.AISLE. No longer are there cute sweatshirts with sweet little puppies and monkeys and practically perfect cartoony t-shirts. No. Now we have skulls, flames and guitars. I was the only one who was disappointed. He was in heaven and fell in love with this outfit- his back to school outfit.
Emily got new glasses. And they are not purple plastic frames. They are more of the big girl variety, with actual nose pieces and peace signs on the side arms. But I have no picture to share, because she runs and hides whenever I get the camera out. So instead, I share my list of items to take camping this weekend (yes- camping this weekend, again, as in twice this summer- just call me the camping queen). I left it on the counter, and Emily wrote me a sweet message.
Finding this surprise made it possible to continue with my week of horrors.
On another note- yes we are on a health kick and will only be eating really healthy nourishing things while camping.
