But I always like to take my camera because, more often than not, I catch something new.
Look at this fine-feathered fellow!
And his iridescent friend.
I don't really have any fine feathers for myself this summer, although I did find some pretty sleeveless tops which are coming in handy right now.
No fine feathers for my sons, either. At their advanced ages (ha!) they don't outgrow clothes like they used to. Frank is always happy if I pick up something at Costco for him. Ernest needs a longer inseam which is hard to find, so I usually order on-line if he wears something out. He needed new running shoes for cross country and I also forced him into a new pair of Converse after ignoring his complaint: "The old ones aren't worn out yet! I don't want to break in a new pair." Well, the old ones have holes and look pretty grody.
Anyway, good luck with your back to school shopping and find something nice for yourself too! You deserve it.
