We leave for Italy in four days.
In light of this fact, today was spent making a packing list and (finally) getting a rental car sorted out. The kids and I also took a jaunt to the mall -- Soren needed a nice button-up shirt just in case there's a call for fancy-ish attire on our trip -- and we went to Dave & Buster's while we were there. Eleri hadn't been there yet and has been begging to go, so it seemed like the thing to do. There were barely any people there at 10:30 on a Monday morning, so that was a big plus. ;)
Later in the afternoon, I took them to the pool. Soren has been trying to learn how to dive, and Eleri has discovered a love of belly flops. Such goofballs.
Tomorrow we finally, officially start putting things in suitcases! Eep! And we have to start putting our summer newspaper together. First issue drops on Thursday. ;)
