Tackle It Tuesday - Back to School Preparations

19 August 2008
Wow, today has been a busy day! The kiddos were little troopers and willingly helped me out a lot!

We did about 7 loads of laundry thus far. It's been raining here for days and days, so we were behind.

Cleaned out their dressers, organized them, and did clothes inventory. I have a much better grasp on what clothes they will need before school starts.

Started dinner in the crock pot.

Cleaned out the fridge and scrubbed the kitchen.

Browsed Ebay for a Mork & Mindy lunch box. Yes, I said Mork & Mindy. Ashley wants one so badly! She keeps telling me they look old. Who knew that 30 year old lunch boxes look old?

Gathered new recipes to try for school day breakfast and lunches. My kids are not big sandwich eaters. We found this fun, special breakfast recipe we will be having for the first day of school.

Now I am waiting for the kids I sit to get here.

Here is what the kiddos are up to:

It was a fun, productive day and I really enjoyed the time with my kiddos. I'll miss them during the day once school is back in session.

You have been a busy mommy today! Mork and Mindy...I had forgotten about that show! :) I hope your kids have a great week at school!

Sounds like you have been a busy mom! I would love to say that I can accomplish as much as you do, but my days aren't always quite as successful as yours sounds!

Wow! And all I did was rearrange Lucian's room. Well, and the usual stay at home mom thing. :)

Very cool denim blog! I used to love Mork and Mindy and I'm cracking up that she thinks the lunch boxes look old. If they look any nicer, you'll pay a small fortune to get it! Good luck!
