The kids and I are leaving tomorrow (with Mima and Papa) for a trip to Alabama to see our family there. The kids are so excited about seeing their cousins! I am not thrilled about the drive but hopefully there will be enough adults to keep the kids entertained. I think we will make up our week of school work over Christmas break and just take one week off then.
It's just ridiculous how much STUFF 5 people need for a week... and more ridiculous, how long it has taken me to get it all together. This is why vacations are almost not worth it! Although I know I will forget all the work that went into it when I see my kiddos laughing and playing with their cousins, who they don't see nearly enough!
Eight kids under 7 in one house for a week... Lord help us!
