100, and lists are out!

After spending all of June wondering if summer was ever going to warm up, it was raining and mid 70's to low 80's all month..... yesterday finally hit 100! Ugh! I've only ever been pregnant during the summer, with 1 June, 1 August, and 2 October babies, so I have capris and light shirts. But it was just plain hot yesterday! No wind to speak of to refresh either. I think the sympathetic looks I get when I wander out are funny though. I spend most of my day in an air conditioned home kept at 70, do you see how white my legs are? It's only hot when you go outside!

William's shoes are literally falling apart, thanks to being used be his 2 older brothers. So we ventured out yesterday to find some new ones. He was so excited about his new shoes! He can get them on by himself, courtesy of velcro straps, and he like the baseballs on them. I liked the black and gray ones better, but not $30 better..... $9 seemed like a much more do-able shoe. I keep all the shoes that are decent as handmedowns in a big box, where we usually go "shopping", but for some odd reason I didn't have any in size 7! Hmmm.....

And while we were at the store, we found they had the lists out for school supplies! Summer sure seems to have sped by, it's only mid-July, but the lists are already here and waiting. This is great, it gives me a few weeks to get everything together, but wow. School sure gets pricey too, when you have 2 that need supplies. Luckily, Oren's backpack is in fine shape, but we'll get Nathan a new one to celebrate entering Kindergarten.

Fun little bright spot.... I don't have to buy baby nail clippers! I found a pair in the box that is supposed to hold bottles, but there were only 2 and they didn't have nipples. Add those to my list, and take the clippers off! Amanda was asking the other day what I still needed for baby, and it's just boring stuff like milk storage bags, lansinoh, diapers..... My list of things to do is far longer than my list of things to get! Except for nursery stuff, and pretty much everything is things I prefer certain brands of, having done 3 other children and know what I like.

I think I still have some of your Avent nipples and possibly bottles too. I'll dig through some of my boxes and fish 'em out for you.

aHHH....lists, lists, lists. I have found that sometimes my kids skip a size in something--because I just plain forgot to go get them something new. :) So that is our reason for missing a few sizes in between.

Hoping you get to sit in a bath of icecubes tonight...
