Kathleen wanted a tote bag this year, instead of a backpack. And of course she wanted something that noone else was going to have! So....while she's been down in NJ soaking up the sun and sand, I've been slaving away on her bag. :) I know she's going to love it. I even found that matching notebook/binder in Target last night. Coolio! This bag is so cool I want one too! However, now that she's 13, the idea of Mom matching her doesn't hold the appeal it once did. No more "twinsies." *sigh* I wish she'd quit growing. Darn kid. I'm glad she'll be back on Saturday, though. I'm missing her. She's missing her cats. Hmmmf.
