Well, packing is in full swing here at our house. The little girls are all set - minus putting shoes into the suitcase. Which brings me to my thoughts for today.
When you have a household with 5 females, the amount of shoes needed to go on a week long vacation is amazing!
The guys pack and it is a pair of shoes and maybe a pair of flip flops. The girls pack and it is flip flops, ballet flats, tennis shoes or their Converse, maybe even boots.
We women think of all the possibilities; being a tourist, hiking, being in the car for hours, the weather.
We also think about what shoes look best with what we are wearing that day, and if we may need to dress up a bit; perhaps we will be going to church while we are away.
Add to this multiple outfits, though we do pack things that go together to make different outfits, jammies, undies, socks, knitting, books to read, movies to watch and you have one full car!
Praise the Lord for a patient and understanding husband and daddy!
We are headed out tomorrow and I have tons of things to do before we go, so I better get busy!
