On Saturday I took Brendan to a Magic for Kids class. He learned several new tricks, not sure if he will remember them all though. After that we went to a neighborhood garage sale for a few minutes. It is a large neighborhood that has an annual garage sale, and it was crazy. Cars lining both sides of every street, people walking all over the place, and they even had port-a-potties and had tents of people selling BBQ and other food. It was like a festival! I had Brendan with me, and his legs didn't hold out all that long, so we only hit about 3 streets. We did find some great deals though:
Winter coat for Brendan= 50 cents
2 shirts for Brendan= 25 cents each
3 Dragonball Z videos= 25 cents each
1 Goosebumps movie= 50 cents
2 large transformer type toys= 25 cents each
1 Captain Underpants book= 25 cents
1 kid book about the Earth= 25 cents
So all that for $3.25 total! Gotta love garage sale prices!
That night we headed to one of Joe's co-workers house for a bonfire. Everyone was supposed to wear a crazy hat (not sure why). Joe and I wore sombreros and the boys wore fish hats. It was fun. I completely forgot to take pictures though.
Sunday I took my SUV in to have the tires balanced (again), since they've been wobbly. Turns out they didn't need balanced- the belt had broken and the spokes were poking out. And they said the tread was very bad too. So, Joe took it back in this morning and had 4 new tires put on.
This week is Teacher Appreciation week, so I spent some time over the weekend getting stuff ready for that too. I cannot believe Brendan only has 2-1/2 weeks of school left! After today, there's only 12-1/2 school days left! (the last day of school is a half-day). Wow.
