Today's focus was back to school. We decided, however, that before we went shopping we should have lunch at Olympia. It was delicious as usual with Meg adding a chocolate shake and Cam a GHS sundae to their meals. After lunch we headed to Target for back to school shopping. Cam was able to find all of the supplies on his list and Meg picked up some folders and such. Our next stop was MC Sporting Goods. Cam found a pair of Nikes to replace his worn out tennis shoes. Meg looked for soccer cleats, but they didn't have the ones that she wanted. We had just enough time to run into GameStop before piano. Cam found two games that he had been looking for. Unfortunately, one was missing the disk, but they were able to order it for him.
Piano went well. Doug picked Meg up from there for soccer practice and Cam and I went to his back to school party at Andre's. It was a pool party. I was afraid they would have to move it inside because of the weather, but the rain was very light and the students didn't even seem to notice. I stayed at the house mostly reading in my van. I am nearing the end of my book and really want to finish before I start school. I did get out several times to check on him. He was having a great time. It is amazing the difference a year makes. Last summer he was unsure of his new classmates, but not now. We are blessed that he has adapted so well.
Once we got home everyone decided to eat dinner at Oakwood. It was crowded, but we got in right away and were able to eat outside before the storm rolled in. It was nice to unwind after a busy day.
