Backpacks...............

This is how we organize the kids back packs in the foyer.
I got little wooden letters and painted them to match our colors. I actually had to buy two packs of letters to get all the A's!
Rob found these 3 prong hooks at Home Depot. They work great because you can hang your other items on the other two hooks. (Jackets, hats, umbrellas, lunch bags, etc.)

This system works really well for us. The kids put their bags here after they get home- and I clean them out from the day. After their homework is complete- they put it or anything else that needs to be returned into their bags. The next morning it is all ready to go and grab on the way out the door!

What a great idea! I'm always trying to track down Nicky's bag, folder, papers every morning... and he's only in PreK! TFS! I'm going to find a spot for him ;)

I like how spaced it is!!! we have a 4-hook rack (4 people in the fam) and each rack has at elast one jacket and one coat, plus bags, hats...it looks so messy!

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
