but first - a little aside on re-entering your life after a family trip.  we got in last night at 10:30. . .luckily kids were sleepy and in their PJs already.  but i didn't unpack a THING. . .John took out the things he would need to go off to work today, and left everything.

our morning today consisted of getting over to Ryan's school to pick up our highly anticipated teacher letter, than off to our last week of Sports Camp.  Owen is home with me - playing with EVERY toy he owns. . .it's a Revolutionary war in the living room, a legoland in the dining room and ZhuZhu Pets upstairs in his room.

me? I'm catching up with work, updating our schedules, clearing the inbox, catching up on Facebook, Twitter and laundry. . .you know - the typical re-entry mom stuff.

what are some of your best re-entry tips?

catch you soon -


  1. I'm terrible at re-entry. And we travel a lot, so you'd think I'd have enough practice. It's not unheard of for me to be unpacking as I'm packing for my next trip (and not because they are back-to-back). We keep a toiletry pack ready to go so we don't have to pack and unpack small basics like toothbrushes etc. Cuts out at least one step.

  2. LOL - we do that too with the extra toiletries. . .sometimes it's SO LONG between trips tho that I have to replace them. . .LOL
