Thrift Stores

I spent $22.50... I purchased 4 Long Sleeve Men's shirts in excellent condition (for Warren) brands were Tommy Hilfiger, Old Navy, and the like, also I purchased a pair of little girls shoes that look like ballet slippers, for Julia, too sweet, 2 Polo Shirts for Warren and Nicholas, and a long sleeved shirt for Nicholas. And a shirt for Mary. I love a good deal.
I wish the older girls would 'consider' the thrift stores. I buy the basics and the rest of the stuff they purchase with their lifeguard/babysitting money. Oh well...

Prepare yourself...

It is a lot harder to let go of your kids than you can imagine... Elizabeth told me last night that Shiela told her she woke in her dorm from a nightmare and looked over to the other bed to see if Elizabeth was there, and of course it was empty because she was not at home. Shiela of course didn't tell me this. Trying to be strong and so forth. Parenting never gets easier.
