leaving soon and tired already

Well, it's been another long day (from 5:30 AM). You'd think I'd be used to it by now, but NOPE! Anyway, we've been working all day to get ready to leave and I haven't packed a bit of clothing! :) I've mostly been working on getting things in order, like getting the house cleaned, running last minute errands, finally finishing baby announcements! I've got food and stuff ready to pack tomorrow morning, but I figure, it's not too hard throwing clothes in a bag, especially when you have and especially early start and a long morning. I always make a point to clean before we leave so we can relax when we come home to a somewhat picked-up house instead of to a whirlwind of mess that we left behind while we were running to leave in a hurry WHEW!

We're not planning on leaving until 9 or 10 so we should be good. I just hope the boys do well in the car. We're trying to time things around nap time for Charley. We decided to take the suburban at the last minute so I'll have room now to sit back with the boys and read and entertain them if I need to. I'm resisting buying the portable DVD player for now, although I know it's a nice way to keep them occupied. We'll see how long we can hold out. Well, my fingers are tired and I have to at least get started packing tonight, toys, books, clothes, etc. Please pray for our safety. I'll post pics when we get back. Love to All!!

Have a grand time in Norfolk! If there is any chance of you stopping off in the DC area as you're passing through, let me know. I'd love to see you, but I do understand that traveling with little ones is complicated!
Love and prayers,
