Beginning to Pack

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.


  1. We are leaving in about 3 weeks and I'm feeling like I need to start a binder too, ha! So excited for you all:)

  2. Hurray for you!!
    Don't forget to take peanut butter.
