Back to school

Youngest came home from her first day of school and asked if she could start shaving her legs. She claims she is just sick of the hair but I suspect that her friends are now shaving.

Son and oldest came home with a bazillion things to be signed. We wonder why kids are so irresponsible - maybe because as a junior in high school mommy has to sign that she has read the syllabus.

My new tent arrived. After the rain issue at the WHC and the fact that my tent is some 30 plus years and I'm sick of crawling into a tent I can't stand up in I decided I was going to buy a new tent. Next day I get an e-mail from LL Bean that they are having a sale on all of their camping gear. Woohoo! It was sunny and beautiful so I son and I set the tent up. Youngest spent the night in the tent along with all of her webkinz.

I tested out two recipes from food network magazine. Aaron Sanchez's Mexican brownies and Ellie Krieger's double chocolate brownies. And drum roll please...... the Mexican brownies were preferred by 4 out of 5 family members. Son said as long as they were brownies he did not care. And Ellie's were really good don't get me wrong but.... you test them and let me know.

Hubby took me for breakfast and then he washed my car. Ah, the sweet sound of the school bus and silence.

My daughter is 10 and all her friends are already shaving (or Nairing, lol!). She hasn't asked about it yet, but I know it's coming.
