We spent a couple days a week at the water park. The younger kids were game to go as often as I was willing to take them, I forced the teenagers to go once a week at minimum. they were happier if a friend could come.
I saw more friends this summer in my swimsuit than I ever have. some I'd never seen in the past 15 years and there I was in all my glory. I'm not gonna lie, it's not my favorite outfit to be seen in, and yet I went, a few days a week with the kids. I discovered, the more I went, the easier it was for me. I have an amazing tan and ridiculous tan lines. I feel almost confident if I wear my sunglasses, earrings and lipstick.
As the summer comes to a close, I am starting the back to school prep. I haven't shopped at all but we got braces on the 3 oldest kids today. We went with Wright Orthodontics in Mesa, if you go, give them my name. pretty please with sugar on top.
Peyton can't make a serious face for a picture to save him.
Next on my list of school prep is new haircuts for the kids. Liberty has an appointment for a cut and color before school starts and the boys obviously need haircuts. I spent yesterday morning Pinning trendy mens haircuts on my pinterest board, It's a hairy subject.
and after that I'm on a quest to find the ever elusive red erasable pens. They are required every year and aren't sold in the basic back to school sections or at the big box stores. I have to hit up the office supply store. I might as well suck it up and buy glue sticks and dry erase markers in bulk.
I hope your summer has been delightful.
leave me a comment and tell me all about it. I feel completely out of the loop with most of my friends. that's the only downside to summer vacation.
