around here (and there)

we are back at home from west virginia


for good it seems

this past week Lily and i spent a lot of time at home organizing and out and about running errands

we spent four hours in her bedroom on tuesday going through everything

clothes, shoes, toys, art supplies….


none of her fall/winter shoes from last year fit her

so we went out and got some new ones

along with new jeans, jackets, lunch box…

she is pretty much back to school ready

third grade

starting in seventeen days

on monday she will start a full week of day camp with one of her besties

the week after she will be taking sewing classes for two and half hours every day

and then….. summer break will be over

it was a great one

but i sure will be sad when it’s done

happy friday and happy weekend friends
