So, today was our first official day of summer vacation. I know yesterday was Memorial Day, but we would've taken that off regardless. I'm not sure what I expected, but it seemed like rather a dull day. The weather was gorgeous, however. Warm and windy. I opened all of the windows in the house and watched the curtains flit about. A couple of door slams (!) caught me off guard. *puts door stops on the shopping list*
The best part of the day was seeing my friend's brand new baby girl. This is her second daughter out of six children, so I think she's loving being in the pink again (the other daughter is her oldest). Lydia and I brought a meal over. You might be thinking, "Oh, how sweet of you to make them dinner...." I have an ulterior motive though--I want to see the baby. = ) What a peanut! (We're bringing another meal to a different family tomorrow. This little girl is the second daughter of five kiddos. Can't wait!)
I also ordered some more of our homeschool stuff for the fall. Christianbook.com is so gracious. I had a free shipping code which expired in mid-May before I'd made up my mind about a few things in my cart. Well, I called customer service, and they cheerfully gave me a new code to use today. (It never hurts to ask.) I still have several things to order from Rainbow Resource, but that will have to wait. $$$
I did order a couple of fun things for me today. The Duggars DVD (1st season) was only $5, and I also bought a Downhere CD. (Eh...my birthday's comin' up.) I'll have Dave help the kids wrap them, and then I'll act all surprised for the unwrapping.
