I also took J17 and K11 shopping this afternoon. There were things they both discovered they needed (or things I forgot to check) before school started- such as sneakers that actually fit. I also was informed by both boys the night before school started that they needed new backpacks. Now, really, don't you think they could have told me that earlier when I asked what else they needed... But at least things were on sale since school has already started. That seemed to take all afternoon but it really only took a few hours. Of course, there were a few other stops to make as well so we did a combined trip.
But I did want to share a few images of the day...
First, one of the morning glories we've got climbing up the side of the deck:
And V's birthday present to himself:
A replica of Blackbeard's flag! We've had a 'traditional' pirate flag flying for a while but this one finally arrived- special order. I'm sure people driving by on the highway will wonder even more about us!The Surprise lilies are blooming.
Finally, our latest outdoor addition:
One more day to the weekend. I know it will be busy.
