6. Went to Tacoma to see American Idols on Tour with #5 and a few thousand squealing pre-teens and teens.

16. Bought and assembled furniture for #5's room.
17. Started Bee Hat.
18. Looked for a new car.

20. Enjoyed a week on the Sunshine Coast. A little sun, a little rain, a little relaxation.
21. Started Frenchman's Creek sock from Tsarina Socks

22. Cleaned out lots of STUFF from house. How DOES it all accumulate?
23. Looked for a new car.

Did you notice a recurring theme? The old green Windstar went for it's last spin around the block back in June and we've been searching for the right deal on a replacement ever since. Three months later and I think we may have it. Not quite what I envisioned myself driving, and certainly NOT what #4 wants to be seen in, let alone learning to drive in, but here it is.....my new wheels....

Now it's back to school, back to work, back to the regular routines.
