A record for me!

So, school starts next month and guess what? I have ALREADY purchase ALL the supplies for both Tucker AND Tanner and they are packed, ready and waiting in their brand new backpacks. (hidden in MY room to help avoid temptation) This is a first for me as I am usually scrambling around just days before school begins. I must say, it was quick and easy and now I have one less headache for next month! Yay! I was able to purchase EVERYTHING at Walmart in one trip where I usually have to go to at least 4-5 stores to locate all the items. It's nice to know that we are ready to go and I was able to get everything (at super prices) before it was all picked over. Again, YAY me!

RYC: I just posted an update. I'm at the far end of the grapevine over here. It's been a little crazy for them so a phone call to Wales sometimes get forgotten. :) Thanks for asking about him.

Yay, go you!! Now you can relax and enjoy the summer without feeling panicky about "back to school" prep! You also won't have to worry about things being all sold out, which happens when you wait too long ... LOL ;-)

RYC: This one was a surprise. We do want to have more we were just planning on waiting a bit longer. I thought after having 4 close together it would be a nice time to have about a 3 year gap, but I guess God had other plans. :) Definitely hoping that pink is in His plans, too.

I have a slight confession to make. Be warned, when you hear it, you'll learn just how manic and um, NUTS I can be. Staples has been having sales on school supplies every weekend for the last few weeks. And I? Have gone a little Staples happy. I've gone multiple times, and have started quite a collection of glue sticks and pencils. So we'll be all ready when Josh goes to school. In three and a half years.
Don't say I didn't warn you...I'm a total freak show.
