A little cloudy today, but it only looked like rain just enough to keep me from starting any outdoor projects. The temperature was in the low 80s, so it was almost perfect.
My daughter and her family went shopping today for school stuff. They've already got pencils and other school supplies, so this is mostly a school clothes shopping event for backpacks and other things you wear.
The grandkids are looking forward to starting school, so they'll get to spend time with more of their friends. And of course, it's still elementary school, and elementary school is okay; even I didn't mind elementary school too much since it was junior high school, when the school turned into a miserable experience for me. But the grandkids have had a good time this Summer, and it looks like it will be a good year for learning at the school that there going to.
The elementary school that they both attend is just about perfect in size. I don't know how many students are there, but I'm guessing around 300. The school is big enough so it has all the amenities, but small enough so the teachers and the students mostly know one another.
It's a pretty school, I've shown pictures of it in my blog. It has manicured lawns and shade trees, and it's right next to a neighborhood park, so it has more of a country feel than a suburban school. And I just learned that Monday is not a regular school day; it's a meet and greet for the students, teachers, and parents.
I did some laundry today. Since I don't stay in many RV parks, I usually have to do laundry at a commercial laundromat, and I always dread it. It's expensive, the washing machines are tiny, so they hardly hold anything, and you never know what you'll find when you open the lid ! So it's a real treat when I get to do laundry here, where my daughter's washing machine is so big that It will hold just about all of the clothes I own.
These are good bugs because they eat all kinds of bad bugs like mosquitoes.
But they look like their landing gear is too far forward so it seems like they would fall off their stick.
