Summer kickoff

The boys headed out for the coast this morning for a barbeque and Subaru joy with Greg's car cronies. Zack was feeling all manly, going somewhere, just with Dad. He only screamed briefly (dropping his manliness altogether) when confronted with a bee while packing up, and came inside to read the Magic School Bus Inside a Beehive, to soothe his mind. Which is exactly what I do when something scares the bejeebus out of me or worries me - I research it until I know all there is to know about it. It gives me a (false) sense of control. Anything for some peace of mind.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Lexi and I are headed to the mall to buy her some shorts and sandals. I need to stop feeding this one; she grows too quickly. My sister is still in California, so I can't pick her brain for shopping suggestions. She is the designated fashionista in the family and so adores the mall. I haven't been back since Santa 2006. It's not my natural habitat.

I hope to find some appropriate, yet hip, girly stuff for my nine year-old. I also hope to bring about world peace.

A girl's gotta dream.

So that's what it's like to have another girl around the house!!! But, I too, avoid the mall at all costs. Tried the wet socks, by the way, last night -- awesome!!

Hope you had a great shopping trip - so sad that I was gone on vacation, as I would have LOVED to come to the mall with the girls. Oh well...maybe you'll go with me before we see Santa again this year (or maybe not). :)
