Tomorrow's the BIG day!

Lunches packed....check Backpacks (and all the other truck loads of school supplies) packed...check
...for Elisabeth...

...for Gates...
.... and for Hogan.
Uniforms ironed and ready to go....check (Yes I do iron their clothes everyday. Please forgive me it is just one of those things I'm a lot OCD about. It drives Josh cRaZy.)

Children a sleep in their beds...oh wait NOT. They are all fake sleeping and can't go to sleep. They are going to be hard to get up in the morning.

Gates the faker!

Elisabeth the Faker! (She sleeps in her brothers' room because she is too scared to sleep in her own. She has a beautiful pink bed but wont sleep in it)
Hogan the faker!
Tomorrow will be so sad for me. I don't think I'm gonna know what to do with myself.
Oh wait I might could catch up on my house. It's a wreck and Aundrea wont be back until September 3rd.
Please pray for all our first days of school. I love fresh beginnings and the start of school seems to be one to me, but I know how hard they can be, too. I pray that my kids have great teachers, make great friends and learn great things. Most importantly pray for them to be like Jesus. Have blessed day!

That is a hilarious and an awesome blog... what a great memory... I love all their bags... so sheek.

I never knew you were a little OCD about ironing... I don't even own an iron if that says anything.

Have a great day tomorrow and hopefully the kids got to sleep.

Awww! I hope they have a wonderful day! I'm so glad to know you iron their clothes. Seriously, I asked some of my girlfriends if they did and they all laughed at me! HA! :o)

Such cuties, I hope you get some you time!

I am OCD about ironing, too. I used to iron every day, but now just try to do it all at once so that I have one less thing to do in the mornings.
I love Elisabeth's backpack!! As a former teacher, the first day of school was so much fun for me. I love the new smell, the new outfits, everything about it!!

Looking forward to hearing all about it!! I, too, am an OCD ironer. Not OCD about many things, but ironed clothes...yes!

Love E's backpack. Super cute. I might be a little OCD about backpacks, too!!:)

You're my hero -- you actually iron clothes. I HATE ironing. It's really the only household chore that I despise and try to get out of if at all possible. But since I'm too cheap to pay for dry cleaning every couple of weeks, I suck it up and do it. (Maybe 1-2 times per month?) Pretty sad.

Hope the kiddos had a great first day! Can't wait to read about it!

(Oh -- and what in the world with having so many people in the delivery room with you?? You need to blog about that sometime!)

You and Katy both have this ironing disorder. :) Who had it first?

I'm all about ironing things when they need Sunday a.m. dresses, khaki pants, etc. Everyday clothes, like t-shirts, forget it. Mike sends all of his work clothes to the cleaners thankfully.

Camille, I love the fact that you don't even own an iron. You're my hero! :)
