It's super busy here for us; we came home Sunday night from camping and Monday morning went right into school clothes/supply shopping. We're not quite done yet, but I must say that Nicholas and I haven't argued once yet during this whole shopping expedition. That's an accomplishment in itself; because I am so very practical when it comes to shopping and spending money. And of course Nicholas is a pre-teen who wants to buy all that is fashionable . . . and that can get pricey. But I think it has helped that he knows his budget; and it is what it is. This has made him more conscious of his purchases. Of course, the majority of his money is going to shoes . . .
We're going to the factory outlet today and trying to get everything else finished up by tomorrow. We have a filled agenda for the remainder of his summer (which is exactly 1 week)! Waterpark on Thursday and camping (again . . I know huh!) with his All-Star baseball team. I'm also hoping to squeeze in another beach day; we'll see.
I have photos to share from our camping trip. I alternated between my point & shoot camera and my slr camera. I chose not to edit any of the camp pictures yet, I just wanted to get them posted since this week is already moving fast for us!

|Sweet Noah boy . . . he was in his element the moment we got to camp. Dust and dirt and The Great Outdoors is surely his thing!|

|The hikers . . . we must have hiked almost 3 miles that day! We were famished when we returned from camp!|
