Summer is here!

I always forget as we get into the summer season just how busy it can get.  But here we are, already past July 4!  I was looking at my calendar the other day and surprised by how much we already have planned.  And Amanda will be starting Kindergarten on August 14!  So really we barely have a month until SCHOOL starts!  Yikes!

I bought Amanda her school uniforms this week.  Schools in LAUSD can "suggest" a uniform, but any parent can opt out for their child (for any reason) by just sending a letter to the office saying they opt out.  But when I told Amanda about it, and had her pick out her uniform clothes with me on-line, she was more than excited to shop.  Plus she told me she didn't want to look 'different' than the other kids.  The 'uniform' is just khaki bottoms and a navy or white polo shirt, which is basically sold by just about any kids clothing store out there.  I ended up buying from Children's Place because they were having a big sale plus, I had a coupon for 20% off.  Yay sales!

We spent July 4 at my parents for a bbq, as is the custom since my Dad's birthday is on July 4.  Then we walked up to a local Church that does a big fireworks show.  Although this year we felt it just wasn't as good.  Maybe next year we'll try something new.

I have been sick on and off for the last 3-4 weeks and I am sick (ha!) of it.  First Mike & I both came down with a cold that just sapped our energy and made us congested.  Then just as I was sure I was over that, I came down with a stomach flu on Monday this week.  SO not fun.  I'm still recovering from that and getting my appetite back.

My hair is slowly growing back, and now I feel like I'm in that "in between" time when I don't quite have long enough hair, but it's long enough to be shaggy.  I probably should go back to my hairdresser, but honestly I don't know when I'm going to find the time!

Anyway, here's to a fun and busy summer!
