Abigail is going to have some sewing lessons with a friend - and is going to learn to make pj pants - so we headed over to a fabric store on Argyll that the friend recommended, and Abby picked out the fabric for her first pair! She picked My Little Pony :)
As we were already on Argyll we also stopped in at Bedrock Supply - the children had never been, so I got to show them round and they had the chance to see all the gemstones, soapstone, charms, beads etc etc...oh and to meet the two budgies they have :)
This Amethyst was the same size as Sam :)
After picking Susannah up from school, we headed to the library as Susie had some new books she wanted to get. I took the opportunity to get some dvds's - some movies I've wanted to see for a while, and one for Susannah that all her friends had seen but she hadn't!
Tonight (after a yummy supper of baked potatoes and cheese salad) I sat and watched Akeela and the Bee with Abigail - a movie about the Scripps Spelling Bee. Abby has been thinking about applying to the bee next year - but I think she might reconsider after watching the movie and seeing how tough it can be! However it did pique her interest in learning Latin! So I googled some online websites to help her, and we will learn some!
After that movie, Abby went up to bed to read, Sam sat on the computer, and Susannah and I watched 'American Pie'. I hadn't seen it for soooo long but it was still so funny! And the party scenes seemed sooo real now that I have two teen sons lol!
