|We never travel this light!|
The meteorologist on the news said things will be heating up this week. Honestly, how much hotter can it get? Maybe I don't want to know...

I hear of so many people finding fabulous things at thrift stores. All over blogland you will see these finds made over brilliantly. I love the idea of taking something old and making it new and fresh. Last week LM & I had to run some errands and she asked if we could go to the Hospice Re-sale store in town to find an outfit for under $10 (an idea she saw in her American Girl book "Just Mom and Me"). We stopped by to see what we could find. I figured I might find some fun furniture or accessory to play with. Well....
The clothing selection was really sparse, especially for kids. The furniture/accessory selection wasn't much better and I felt like everything was really overpriced. I know the funds go to a good cause so that may be why there weren't too many bargains to be found. I did find some books for a project I am doing for $1 each. All books, even hardbacks, were $1. I think that might be a bit high for paperbacks but I'm not sure. But it was an amount I was comfortable with spending. I picked up 3 of these books for my project and 2 to read.

LM started 4th grade. For some reason 4th grade seems so old. 9 doesn't sound as old as 4th grade does to me. She has had a good couple of days, likes the teacher and her classmates. Homework? Not so much. I think we hit the jackpot with her class. Good, hard-working, nice kids. The cream of the crop, really. It doesn't happen every year so I know she will enjoy it. Tomorrow night is 'Parent Information Night' at the school. I know I should go but I am considering not. This is our 5th year at the school so even with changes how much more information do I need? But I also feel like it is the right thing to support the school so we'll probably go.
Now that school has started I'll get back into a routine and have time for fun projects like painting and blogging. Promise. September Acres is now on Facebook, too so I'd love it if you 'liked' me (button at top of this page). I am not a huge Facebook user but thought it would be nice to have a presence there.
Stop back by real soon to see what I have up my sleeve...
