There is a lot of planning going on right now...

Planning for a trip to Destin
Planning for a Kindergarten Parent's Meeting/Board Meeting
Planning for the start of school
Planning for Kids Closet

I'm planned out.

We leave for Destin on Friday afternoon. We've done this trip so many times (Sarah's 4th trip, Beth's 8th or 9th? trip) that I've got it down pat. Each time, I realize I need to pack LESS the next trip. We pretty much stay in swimsuits and gym shorts all week and I have a washer and dryer there, and I usually do laundry at least once. We are taking the pack-n-play this trip for Sarah, too. I no longer feel the need to do anything other than hang at the beach or on the deck all day. I try to make only one trip to Silver Sands Outlet Mall. Generally speaking, its becoming a more low-key vacation each time. As long as the girls are content to just hang out, then great! We will probably also make another trip to the leaping fountains, although I can guantee Sarah won't want to have anything to do with it again. She hates the sprinkler in our backyard big time!

Our Kindergarten Parents' meeting is Thursday night. We also got Beth's school supply list in the mail Saturday and she is SO EXCITED to be able to go out and get those things. She wanted to go RIGHT THEN and get everything and I had to convince her that we were in no hurry - she has 1 month till school starts! She's pumped up!

Kids Closet Sale is technically in the fall, but all the planning starts 6-8 weeks out and that is NOW. I do pretty much all the publicity, and I have lots of deadlines in the next 2-3 weeks. That's okay, it WILL get done on time! :-)

I'm off to make my "packing list" for Destin!
