Be Prepared

We are all packed and ready to go on vacation. We've purchased enough sunscreen to send a family of five to Mercury for a week. We've stocked up on magazines, ice pops, pretzels, and beer. My six year old son found this bag in the attic and insisted on packing his clothes in it:

Farewell, Thomas the Tank Engine suitcase. My boy is shipping out without you. He did, however, pack a few of his men to keep him company:

My daughter learned her lesson last summer when she ran out of books and had to visit the local library. Although, it was kind of fun to visit a library on vacation. She's got an entire bag filled with fat books. We need to decide if we are going to listen to Artemis Fowl or Tuck Everlasting on CD for the seven hour drive and then we're set to go. Well, we have to cram all of our stuff in the car and forget a few things first as is our routine, and then we're off. I hope to see you back here in a week. In the meantime, what are you reading this summer?

I just finished Pride and Prejudice - and loved it... Don't know what's next -I need to hit the library.

Christine, we, too, are packing. And doggone' it, it's stressful. I feel like I need to update my will, for heaven's sakes.

Am taking the NYT "best books for kids" list to the library tomorrow.

XOXO and have a blast.

Safe journeys.
