|This place always makes me wish I had more time to make things.|
We started at fabric stores, since the boys aren't usually that interested in hanging out there. Azia has also been begging to go to Joanne's since her birthday because she has a "credit card" to spend there.

|She actually did pretty well with her chopsticks, but about halfway through she got too hungry and had to switch to the fork. It was much faster!|
After lunch we headed over to the mall. I think I only go to the mall about once a year these days, if even that often. But, Azia was pretty sure they had the best accessories. She doesn't really need any school clothes so I agreed to let her pick out some new earrings and things.
|Azia loves the fountain at the mall. She brought two pennies from home to throw in once we got there--one for her and one for me.|

|Azia was a little too short. Her stylist had to borrow an extra cushion. Or two.|
The mall was completely closed by the time we got out of there. We still hadn't got any school supplies or anything so we ran over to Target which was still open for about a half an hour. We almost had enough time to find everything. I'm still going to have to go back to get a few things Azia couldn't find as well as some of the things the boys are still needing. And maybe some socks so I can just throw away by big basket of mismatched ones and start over.

|And the right color notebook. Her red stripes (another reason we were at the hair place so long) look pink here.|
|By the time we got out of there we were nearly the last ones in the store and it was completely closed, too. We just needed more hours in the day to get everything done.|
