Prepping for Our Trip

I'm bustling around at school this morning, finishing up the last of my to-do list before we leave for Spring Break tomorrow. And in the midst of crossing school items off that list, I'm simultaneously building my to-do list for tomorrow - which is a day full of prep for our trip to Virginia. 

As I was writing out my list, I started laughing to myself about how much things have changed over the past few years & how differently our road trips look now than they used to. 

Old To - Do List: 
  • fill up car with gas
  • update playlist 
  • finish up load of laundry
  • pack clothes for the week
  • buy a magazine to read in the car  
New To - Do List: 
  • fill up car with gas
  • charge & update iPad 
  • download new episodes of Sofia the First & Goldie and Bear 
  • pack cooler with juice boxes & snacks
  • pack bottles/formula/puffs/baby food 
  • pack bag of Livy's toys
  • pack Ella's car bag (see separate list) 
  • finish up 3 loads of laundry 
  • pack Ella's suitcase
  • pack Livy's suitcase
  • pack own suitcase
  • download new books on Kindle 
  • charge iPhone/pack chargers 
So yeah... it's a lot more work. We're really excited about the trip though! My parents are officially moved in & they gave us a FaceTime tour last night. Ella was pumped to see where we'll be sleeping & happy to know that the DirecTV installation is scheduled for today :) I will say that I just love their house, but it is HUGE compared to anything they've ever lived in before! I have no idea how they're going to fill it up with just the two of them. I guess we'll just have to spend a lot of time down there visiting them :) 

Now I need to get back to work, those to-do lists aren't going to complete themselves!
