You know when you wake up and try to remember the day and think, how did we get here? The summer months just flew by and now we are scrambling around in disbelief. School begins in just a couple days and like every year, it snuck up on us.
Last week, we spent a day at the American Girl store at Stanford Shopping Center. They had three events that day. We were lucky to experience two of them. Both events we attended were free, and age-appropriate for both girls. There are so many events going on this summer. Check your local store to see what activities will be happening in your area.
When I was a little girl, I loved playing with dolls. I would spend the summer with my grandparents. My grandmother spent hours making doll clothes for many of my friends. American Girl had just started, and several catalogs had made their way around the school yard. I couldn’t wait to order my very own doll.
A few years ago, I wrote about coming home from a date night to an atrocious play tent in my living room. Grandma thought it was a great idea, and of course Emma loved it. She played with that tent for months. I was so happy when it finally fell apart.
