We had school enrollment this morning, so Kat is now officially a second grader. This was our districts first year to have centralized enrollment, where all students in the district, in all grades, enroll in the same building. In the past, each building held it's own enrollment.
I have to say I was quite pleased at how smoothly everything went. We were in and out in less than half an hour, with no hitches or congested stations at all.
While we were there, Kat picked up information about joining Girl Scouts (Brownie level). While I'm not opposed to that at all, I also want her to know about 4-H (Clover Kid level). While I personally think she would get more out of 4-H, either of these would be a great choice for her first extra-curricular activity. I don't think she needs to join both, though, so I'll leave the choice up to her. If she ultimately decides not to join either, that's alright, too.
Unfortunately, she's feeling a little under the weather today, so it's not a day to make decisions. How do I know she's not feeling well? Because she sat calmly at my side during the entire enrollment process instead of hopping and bopping all over the place. And because she's now quietly watching a movie instead of chasing the cats and scattering toys about the house. And because she says so. I don't think it's anything serious, just her turn to have some issues with her sinuses.
I also updated my grocery spending from yesterday and a quick stop this morning. The month is almost over and I very well may be done shopping. Or I may spend a few dollars more between now and Saturday. My goal at this late date is to keep it under $200.

I bought three dozen eggs this week because my "egg lady" is going on vacation next week. I bought two gallons of milk because, in addition to the Dannon, I plan on making some homemade yogurt. I bought fish sticks because I've been having Kat plan one meal a week for me, and that's what she requested. :)
