Starting a new thread stress - will I be the only one????
Oh, yeah, Laura - have you heard of thredUp ( https://www.thredup.com/ )? Did I mention them before when I sold clothes to them? They pay pretty well for kids clothes - better than a garage sale! If you're interested in checking them out, let me refer you, because we'll both get a $10 credit, I think. I'm getting ready to send them a second bag of clothes.Our weekend was good. I didn't mention, but Allison had the "class bear" this weekend - Baxter. He was to "do whatever we do" and then we were to write about it in his travel log (with pictures, preferably). So, Baxter went to Disney with us! We went to Hollywood Studios on Saturday. We met Mary Poppins (new to us!) and her penguins (which I had never seen before!). One of the penguins took Baxter and wanted to keep him! It was pretty funny. And on one ride that requires 3-D glasses, a cast member said "wait - you forgot something" and returned with glasses for Baxter to wear for the ride. I love Disney - it's always such an experience.Sunday it rained, so Baxter didn't get to join us. We went to Animal Kingdom (because DH says we never go there). We actually went on 2 new rides (new to all of us!) - one was a 48" limit - the first time Allison has been tall enough to ride one! (And, geez - 48"??? My kids are so tall!!!) We wore ponchos all day and weren't too miserable.We did make it to IKEA, too. We had to leave the park early-ish to get there, but it was our first priority, so we made sure to make it.When we got home (almost 11:00), I still had to finish something for work, enter my time, and get all the pictures printed for Allison's Baxter book. Ugh. And we had to rush through writing in it this morning. I had to write most of it because of time. But I'm guessing most kids won't write in it anyway - their parents probably will. So I guess it was okay.
The photos that made the book:

The penguin who wouldn't give Baxter back. He was very sweet with Baxter!
On the Toy Story ride - after Baxter got hooked up with his 3-D glasses!
Andrea, the kids were asleep in the car by 8:45 - thank goodness. That was just a little late for them, but we just carried them in to bed when we got home. Not too bad.We did get a few things at IKEA:
Laura, that's really close to the fires - wow! Sorry Sunday didn't work out as planned, but at least you found something to do. Nice that the girls were so good so you could get that work done!!
