This weekend was busy but it was nice. It started off with taking TJ to tap classes. He participated in the 2010 Mad Hot Ballroom and Tap Competition. TJ made it to the semi-finals Swing dancing part. He was given a scholarship to take tap classes at Danceworks for the summer. Parents aren’t allowed to watch during the classes but since it is almost over the whole family was able to come. He looked so cute. He is really good at tap 🙂
I hit up JCPenney do some back to school shopping. I hit the jackpot! I had two coupons, one for $10 off and the other for $15 off. I found Kayla over 15 shirts on the clearance racks. They were marked down 60 and 80%. A majority of the shirts were $3.79 and $4. 59. I found her two Bobby Jack shirts for $5.99. She loves Bobby Jack so I just had to get them 🙂
I found TJ a bunch of shirts too plus some shoes for $9.99.
They were on sale for $19.99 and I had a $10 off coupon. JCPenney was out of his size but I was able to get the right shipped to me for free. Loving that!! Nannah found her some pants for $12.99 that she actually liked 🙂 I am now 99.9998% done with school shopping.
I took the kids to a screening of Tinkerbell and The Great Fairy Escape. It comes out on dvd September 21st. Our review of it will be coming up soon.
The kids’ school had a back to school picnic. There was burgers and hotdogs, games and a raffle. I won a book bag filled with food! You know I was too excited because I love any kind of giveaway! It was nice to go because the kids’ school closed in June. Their old principal is at this new school so it was like going home. She was so happy to see the kids she got all teary eyed. The kids ate some good food, saw some old friends and even got their own swag bags, lol. The fire department was there and gave kids a chance to spray the fire hose. Both TJ and Kayla did it. Nannah was too cool to give it a try, lol.
I also baby sat my nephew AJ and his sister Christie. That is always fun. AJ is moving around more and more. Today he is 8 months old. Christie is 7 and had such a good time playing with Kayla. They played spa with cucumbers on the eyes and face masks on. They were totally relaxing!
