With less than one week left before myself and Sadie leave for Africa our house has become a bit crazy. I am trying to pack for us and get everything ready for Chad, Nolen, and Nancy's trip. The things you need to take when you are going to Africa for 7 weeks with four toddlers is just a bit much for me to wrap my mind around. I am also finding it difficult to find a place to put all this stuff to keep the kids and dogs out of it. Normally when getting ready for a trip I make a list of things to take and things to do. For this trip a list just will not do. I have a binder. Yes an entire binder of things to take care of before leaving and things not to forget to pack.
It is like trying to get ready to have twins. I have been told that this is a feat in itself. However, add to it the fact that we are preparing to spend 2 months in an underdeveloped country with 4 toddlers. Just thinking about it gives me a headache.
