The Great Big School Suppy Hunt

It's almost time to go back to school !
back to school !
back to school !
Yay !!

Today Pickles and I headed out to Wal-Mart to pick up some great school supply deals. We ended up with:
55 - 1 subject notebooks @ 5 cents each.
6- packages of colored pencils @ .88
4- packages of 24 crayons @ .88
2- Backpacks for Daisy and Pinky @ $10 each
12- Folders @ .15 each
4 - loose-leaf packs of paper @ .50
GRAND TOTAL - $35.35 + tax

We still have 360 pencils from the sale at Staples last year and we still have plenty of pens, glue, glue sticks, protractors and rulers, also from last years sale.

So if you're looking for a GREAT deal on supplies Wal-Mart has it.

Yesterday was Pickles 13th birthday. Wow ! Where has the time gone ?!? He was just 8 years old when he and his sisters first came to my home. It seems like a million years ago. We celebrated with an outdoor video game party and cookout.

I like this kid, and not just because he's my kid and I'm totally blessed to have him in my life. I love his spirit. He has such a kind and gentle soul. He can be goofy and silly and sensitive all at the same time. He drives me completely insane with his curiosity (and questions) sometimes and then he goes and amazes me with the profound things he thinks.

Son, my world is a better place because of you.
