Getting Ready for Fall Activities

Today we got school done, then headed out for a quick trip to the dance studio to get L registered. We get there, sign the forms, and find out classes start next week and we need to be outfitted. No time like the present. We headed out to get L's gear, which caused a little sibling jealousy, so we had to look for K's soccer gear, too.

To find everything we needed we went to Target, another Target, dance store, sporting goods store, back to Target, craft store, then home, which made a long afternoon, but the girls were very cooperative. Of course, that's probably because they had a personal stake in it! K is now the proud owner of a soccer ball, a really cool soccer backpack ($3.98!), socks with shin guards, and a water bottle. L came away with a leotard, tights, ballet shoes, tap shoes, and I'm making her a personalized dance bag since we couldn't find one for less than the $30 the dance store was charging. She is the happiest little ballerina in the world and she can't wait until her class Wednesday. I have a feeling it's going to be a *long* wait for all of us.

For those who like advanced planning, L's recital is June 15, 2008 (aka Father's Day), at 6pm. Just in case you want to plan a trip out this way :-)
