Friday already?!

Well, I cannot believe that we are at the end of the summer vacation already. I cannot believe how fast these 10 weeks have passed us by. Tonight, I will have completed my back to school shopping. I have found it much nicer to do it in stages. I take some kids along, and then leave a few at home. Cliff really likes that too, and the kids get a bit more time with us which is a good thing. Makes it more enjoyable for all concerned!

On Wednesday night I bought for Claire and exchanged skirts for Carly. They are set for school! We made a nice night of it, and brought Nonna along and we had dinner at the local Spot. That was a nice treat.

Yesterday, the three older kids had their back to school haircuts which look great! Nice and polished for back to school. Claire got a blonde hair extension, and Carly a purple one. Tucked in and under so the colour just pokes out from under their cuts. OK, when I was 6 and when I was 5 I never would have imagined having that as an option. I have been going to my hair stylist for about 4 plus years. And now she does the kids' hair. So, she treats them. Well I can be thankful they are not tattoos! Wash off ones are fine. Real ones, not so fine for my kids lol.

Tonight it is Cameron's turn for the rest of his shopping. I will take him to dinner and then shoe shopping for his inside shoes and his regular shoes. I asked him if he needs any pants for school this year, and he said I don't want pants. So for now. He will continue to wear his shorts, and when the weather has changed we will make our purchases then.

Where of where did our summer go? Back to routines, earlier bedtimes, snacks and lunches to prepare, and lots of delightful crafts to adorn your new house. God bless all the teachers is all I can say! xx
