I love back-to-school! I love the smell of the school supplies, I love picking out the supplies and the new backpack, I love school. Elaina's uniform tops arrived in the mail today and she's all set for the big day on Monday. I asked her tonight what she will learn about in Kindergarten and she informed me she already knows how to read and write so she's not sure. Oh that girl makes me giggle!

Abigail told me that she's ready for school now, too. When we went to buy Elaina's school supplies Abby threw a fit for about 20 minutes in the store because she couldn't get a backpack, too. I felt so badly. So I think we're going to go back to Target and pick up some of their wonderful school materials in the dollar section (workbooks, for example) and do a little bit of homeschooling to prepare her for school next year.

Did I mention we finally named the black kitten? And did I tell you that he is in fact a he and not a she? Well his name is Solomon and he's a little terror and piglet. I swear he is a dog trapped in a cat's body. He is always cracking me up.

I saw at Hobby Lobby the other day that they've already got Christmas and Halloween decorations out! I am so excited about getting some new fall decor, hopefully. We'll see what the budget allows! But they've got a ton of really neat stuff.

Most of all I'm excited for the change of seasons because it is HOT HOT HOT and I'm ready for some cooler weather, football season, late nights in the cool of the night, the autumn sky, leaves changing colors... mmmmm! I love this time of year!

I can't believe that you did three posts while I was away at the beach!! I'm glad to hear that you are also ready for Fall because everyone laughs at me when I say that I'm ready! I love the haircuts and I think it's great that Z is sleeping in her own bed.
Time for #4!!!

I miss Hobby Lobby! Wahhhhh! The one back home would put Christmas stuff out in July and I just felt it was too soon. But we have a Christmas store open year round out here that we love (it's expensive though) and so I guess it's no better than HL putting stuff out in the summer! I sooooo miss getting fall decor at HL though. :(
