Back to School.......

Very sad that my sister in law & her family leave early tomorrow morning. We had to say our goodbye's tonight because they have to leave around 2am. They spent a whole week with us then went to a few theme parks in Orlando this past week. I'm gonna miss the company....I sometimes hate being so far away from everyone I know but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world (well.....maybe I would trade it in for a beach house in Hawaii). lol Anyways, the countdown to school has begun!! I have to get a move on things because Gio's school uniform still has to be ordered. I also still have to get Koko's school clothes & buy them shoes & backpacks. We try to shop smart but the uniforms always end up costing us an arm & a leg (>200 bucks for Gio's school uniforms alone)!! I shouldn't complain though because he goes to an excellent school. Thank God Evan's school supplies are all taken care of. We got some him some great, inexpensive school clothes at the outlets plus we got 15% off of our purchase at The Children's Place (I love that store). It's so easy getting stuff for Evan because he could care less what clothes we make him put on. lol Gio, on the other hand is super picky & his clothes have to fit him just right or he won't wear them....he's not into baggy clothes like the rest of us. Gio's birthday is coming up as well. July & August are tough on us because we have so many birthdays in the family along with the task of getting ready for school. Talk about a double whammy! One good thing is that my cousin Lisa & my baby girl, Alison, are coming to visit around the end of August......I can't wait!! It's always a relief to have some girls in this house other than myself  =)
