We had a busy morning of back-to-back activities scheduled today. When we left the house at 8AM, all of the following accompanied us:
*bag of dry cleaning to drop off
*birthday gift and platter of mini-cupcakes
*sneakers and socks for the two younger kids
*change of clothes, swim goggles, towels and sunblock for the two younger kids (they had swimming lessons today)
*my taekwondo bag
*Thing One's taekwondo bag
*two water bottles
*Thing One's DS
*snacks for all three kids
AND (of course)
*a partridge in a pear tree.
