We did it!
After months of trying, discussing, retrying, re-discussing, and re-retrying...
The Snyder family of five got out of the house and to church.... on time (or so we thought)!
Sunday morning went something like this:
Girls - rise and shine!
Sarah and Erik - huh? shise and rhine? (yawn)
Erik - run up to the Chalet to start laundry load #1
Sarah - change girls' diapers
Erik - make breakfast
Sarah - breakfast for Jack
breakfast for the rest of us, including a family discussion of what needs to be done, by whom, by when. The goal: out of the house by 9:45 (for church at 10:10).
Jack - nap
Erik - wash dishes
Sarah and girls - pick out clothes
Erik - run up to the Chalet to flip laundry
Sarah and girls - shower together
Erik - dress Camille and take a shower
Sarah - get dressed and dress Catherine
Jack - wake from nap
Erik - get dressed
Sarah - make kids' lunches to eat on the car-ride home
Erik, Sarah, girls and Jack (in tow) get buckled in
Erik - flip laundry on the way past the Chalet
If only this scenario was this Sunday, but - alas! - it was last Sunday's. If only we had remembered to have changed our clocks forward, too!!
