School supplies

I have a love/hate relationship with school supplies. Everyone loves new pens, shiny new binders and fresh notebooks. Not to mention the clothes, shoes, and new stuff needed for school and it gets expensive. I have to buy stuff in chunks so it is not so much at once. I start in the beginning of July looking for new shoes and clothes. Then later do school supplies. I try to catch stuff on sale and buy for the whole school year. 

Today we went and saw Ant Man. It was better than I expected. We went to the orthodontist and then home for dinner   I then made chicken broccoli cheese casserole and it was so good. I made it with homemade cream of chicken soup. Yummy.

A trip to the beach.

These kids really enjoy being together. Yes we sometimes get on each other's nerves but it is to be expected. We do live together. Sometimes someone is teenagerie acting and needs a moment but generally they enjoy each other. 

We didn't do much at the beach but relax. We are not big lay on the beach people. We are too pale, but we do enjoy swimming in the ocean. We also like walking on the beach at night. 

The kids played lots of cards and games of clue. I cooked seafood a few times. We did go out for ice cream but not out to dinner. It is too expensive to take 6 out at a resort. At least for us it is. 

All in all we had a good time and had some down time. School starts for me next Monday. Yikes!

These are some pictures from Emma's birthday.  My baby girl is 13.  What is even harder to believe is that my oldest girl is 17 and a senior.  Crazy. 
Our summer has been busy.  We have had VBS, Youth Camp, trips to the beach, and various play dates and work.  I have been canning like crazy.  If I can find some pictures I will post them.
