Random Tid Bits

  1. I wish that they boy's school would give us a back to school shopping list sooner. We finally got one the tail end of last week. It's nice to have it earlier though. I'm a planner.

    The boys don't need backpacks, or lunch boxes. Mica does however need a new thermos. He somehow dropped his straw, while at camp. I like the traditional thermos because they don't leak. Both boys will need pencils, erasers, and that kind of stuff to. I made the mistake of buying supplies early last year, and missed the mark on many of the things. I'll patiently wait.

  2. Have you done any back to school shopping? (If you have kids that age.)

  3. This year Mica will get a teacher that is brand spanking newish to the system. Both 3rd grade teachers started last year. I know they have to start sometime.

    Unfortunately I know one didn't handle one of our friend's son's very well last year. He's on the spectrum. I struggled in school, and I hate seeing kids that also struggle in any way be treated poorly. I know Mica will do fine with who ever he gets. It's just that I want him to have a good role model. There is no requesting teachers in this day and age. Even if I could request his teacher, it would be more for me. Like I said Mica will do fine with whoever he gets.

    *Update he got the other teacher. The one I preferred. YAY!

  4. Isaak's into saying, "For real!" He uses it in his dialog all the time. He doesn't say, "For pretend!" though.

  5. I like Pinterest, but it's been pissing me off lately! I've been trying to pin, and it isn't happening. Take for instance this post: DIY Sugar Lip Scrubs. I try and pin it and get this: 

  6. No images to choose from. After 2 weeks of not being able to pin a darn thing, I thought, wow I probably need to clear my history. That fixed it for a day. Now I'm back to not being able to pin anything without a pin button.

  7. I'm not a girl that cusses much. When I do Mica says, "Don't say, 'heck' Mom! You're going to turn into Grandpa if you do." For the record Grandpa used to be a whole lot worse then he is now. I have a cursing policeman at my house.

My boys needed new backpacks AND lunch boxes! They ruined the ones from last year.

Ours doesn't send a supply list until the first day of school. It's a real wtf moment every year on their part. I have started saving my older daughter's supply list for a general reference for Allison. At least we can get one knocked out in the summer.

For the pin it button, about 2 weeks ago they made me update my button. Maybe you have to go to Pinterest and upgrade your pin it button that is on your toolbar?

That's right... school is just around the corner. Wow, did the summer ever fly by fast. What little bit of summer we had.
