Lots of stuff has gone on since my last post! Had the first official meeting of Girl Scout leaders. Setting everything up for the new year :) Our first meeting as a troop will be the second Monday of school. Right now, I'm busy preparing the calendar for at least the first couple of meetings.
All the girls got their hair cut. The oldest donated hers to locks of love (and she still has enough to cut off a second round of donation!) The middle had enough, but we forgot to tell the stylist before the initial chop. The youngest, well, she had her hair cut at the same time as the others, but she only did a trim. She really doesn't have a lot of hair. Now, she has even less. Since mommy was in the bathtub soaking after a long day of yard work. And there were an abundance of scissors in the storage bin for Girl Scouts. Now, she looks like Mary Martin as Peter Pan, Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music, Emma Watson, or her daddy at that age. Take your pick. Or, you could just call her Alex (thanks Seth lol)
Oldest daughter went away to a cousin's house for a week. Got back in enough time to be home for a couple of days before going to sleepaway camp at Camp Boggy Creek for medically needy kids. We are going to get her tomorrow, and I'm sure she has lots of stories to tell! A/C in the cabins, 2:1 camper to counselor ratio, crafts, horseback riding, swimming, oh yeah, golf carts to take your gear around. All for free :) Nurses and specialist doctors on call 24/7. Last but not least, no phones! Internet, mp3, etc, all gone for the week. Too much stuff to do, anyway, lol.
Let's see, what else? Painted the house, fixed the front steps, cut down lots of limbs that were dying or scraping the roof. School shopping, scouring the ads for the best prices (who can beat free Expo Markers, 1 cent rulers, 25 cent crayola crayons?). This weekend, we are going to Payless to get the BOGO for 50% off shoes :) Plus, it's summer clearance time, and since we live in Florida...
