September 1st

Wow, tomorrow is the first day back to school. More like the first 1.5 hours back to school. I spent most of my day switching out the summer clothing, to the fall clothing. I purged, packed away tiny little sundresses, and dresses, and clothing that will not be worn again by any of MY kids. It was a strange feeling in deed. But, it is done. And next year, new clothing for Courtney. There is not much left when you pass down girls clothing for the 5th and final time (and a loan to a sister/cuz.)
We did back to school shoe shopping today, we took 5/6 kids (we left Carly with Nonna today) and we did the Bogo sale. And got about 8 pairs of shoes today. And, also I bought some much needed fall clothing at Old Navy for Courtney. As I was saying she doesn't really have any hand-me-downs so she got new. I also bought a couple of cotton sundresses for next summer for the three little gals, and I also got a couple of cute short sleeved shirts for Catie and Caroline to wear around the house, and under warm hoodies. Oh how I love layers.

We are ready!

Sounds great - doesn't it feel good to get back into the swing of things after the summertime???

Glad you took advantage of the BOGO sale, the cashier probably didn't know what hit her!

oh and ps. I love layers too!
