My twelve pics for August were a bit easier this month, though not at first. I didn't take my first pic until the afternoon. Having the Olympics on helped a bit, so did running errands with the family.
My little birdie built a nest to watch TV.
Watching Italy play Croatia in water polo. Never thought I'd watch water polo but I was amazed at how they swam with the ball...without drowning. ;) Sadly Italy did not win.
Took inventory of my printer ink. I am in desperate need of yellow. Gotta take a ride to Staples.
Marissa playing "Sum Dog", the school summer math learning game.
We bought some school supplies without having the list from their teachers since there are a lot of sales now & we won't get the lists for awhile yet. We also bought Marissa her lock for her gym locker so she would have time to practice the combination beforehand.
We had to return a bathing suit Marissa had gotten that didn't fit right & were on the lookout for high top Converse sneakers. Luckily we found her size (in the boys section) & with the credit for the suit & coupons her sneakers cost us only $15.00! Nice!!
We opted to have dinner out & went to Chili's. I tried these Crispy tacos for the first time & they were so good! Sweet & spicy, just my thing!
Joe's not a fan of having his pic taken. He told me to stick a fork in it. For me that's just not an option, especially on the 12th of the month! ;)
Marissa & I were really into watching the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Gianna would come & watch from time to time but Marissa & I watched the whole thing.
My scraproom gets very chilly with the AC so I got cozy in sweatpants & slippers. I forgot I had these slippers & thought they were appropriate for watching the Olympics.
The Lowering of the Torch was beautifully done. I love that each country was represented with a tube & gets to keep one of the tubes.
These pics should probably get an album of their own but they get scrapped very simply & go into my Project Life album. The album is getting very full. I've been adding so many extra pics with inserts. I have a bad feeling that I will be spilling over into a second album for the year. The OCD in me hates that, yet the artsy side of me thinks of how memorable this year has been & it's been fun documenting it all.
