Another week of summer cheer camp has come and gone and Alise had a BLAST! You can’t really tell it from the video because I think she was a little nervous, but she did so much better this year and actually MOVED! Ha! She has talked about nothing all year but going back to cheer camp at this local high school. However, I think she was a little disappointed to find out the first day that her best bud and padre, Emma, decided to sit the week out.
Let’s see. Then there was “Wacky/Tacky Day” – which Alise totally didn’t get. She still wanted to dress “normally” (HER normal, I might add), but I did get her to wear a ballerina skirt, and some polka dot socks with her new pink sequined shoes, so she was a “little” tacky – from the waist down.
Wednesday was black and gold day and I didn’t get a picture. She wore her camp shirt from last year and black shorts.
On Thursday, she dressed up as a Mermaid for “Super Hero Day.” Don’t ask. I think she would have worn a Superman costume if we’d had one. But my camera was dead, so no picture for Thursday.
This week has also been Munchkin Market, which is a local upscale consignment sale that happens about twice a year. I included some clothes last year and netted nearly $400 so I’m hoping for an even better return this year for Alise’s future clothes kiddy. I went to the consignors’ sale on Wednesday (if you consign clothes, you get to shop before the general public) and the line to get in was wrapped around the store!! I did end up finding Alise some really nice things like a pink coat ($8), a pink Kelly’s Kids minky dot 2-piece outfit ($10), and a 2 –piece light blue whale corduroy outfit ($20) with the snowman on the front, which are all now at the dry cleaners. I got a few monogrammed things, a nice Christmas dress with a reindeer applique near the bottom ($15), and a 2 piece Halloween outfit for $5. I was very pleased with my good deals!!
I can’t wait to find out if my own items sold or not.
Not sure how your state fares with immunizations, but Alise is still due a Hepatits A vaccine. When I took her in June for the others, the nurse informed that there was a national shortage on the Hep A vaccine and I’m hearing the same thing this week from friends who are trying to get their own kids’ immunizations. So I called Alise’s school and they said that they certainly wouldn’t kick her out over one shot, but that I still needed to try and get her one as soon as I could.
Alise’s first day at her new school is Wednesday, August 19th. I think she’s ready to go back. She calls her school the “horsie school,” because there is a large picture of a horse (mustang) over the gym and you can see it from the road. Gosh, I’m just praying for a good teacher this year!
And the best news of all? No school supplies! I was beginning to get miffed because I didn’t have a list of school supplies for PreK-4 and since our state’s free sales tax day is today and Saturday, I wanted to take advantage of it. So, I called the school again (I’m sure by now they are tired of hearing from Mrs. Horton…) and was told that all I need to do is cut them a check on Sunday the 16th when we go to find out who her teacher is. Cool. I can live with that.
