After getting Riley from camp, I took the boys last Thursday afternoon to get their new shoes for this school year. (Rory’s first pair….I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone!) When I told Dana and Diana about my plan, they decided to join us. We met at Ponseti’s in Clearview Mall, and all of the kids got fitted for their new school shoes.
School shoes purchased and in hand, we next treated the kids (all except Rory, who declined to participate) to a bouncing session. Riley hadn’t done it in a long time; he had a blast. He did leave the flipping to Claire, though; he’s still too chicken to try it.
After bouncing we moved on to our next and last stop: treats at Tutti Frutti. Riley loved the watermelon sorbet with lots of gummy candies on top, while Rory opted simply for a bowl of M&Ms. Why waste space on ice cream when you can just have chocolate??
School starts just one short week from today. We’ve been doing lots of things during this last full week of summer, in an attempt to squeeze every last bit of fun out before school begins. My last Summer Days post will be up in a few days!
