Look What Came in the Mail

I got my eagerly-anticipated box of photos in the mail. It contained 787 prints that looked like this when the mailman delivered it...

and like this when I got all the envelopes out of the box...

Needless to say, I've got a TON of photo organizing and scrapbooking to do!

These pictures go back to March, from McKenna and Sydney's birthdays and then include such great memories as McKenna's winterguard season, Delaney's spring softball season, our trips to Pigeon Forge and Maryland, the world series, and all sorts of Summer fun. I'm trying to figure out how to organize them all, but I've got a few ideas.

I am frantically trying to meet some work deadlines this week, but next week I hope to get creative with my scrapbooking. And, of course, I'll share it all with you!

For now, I'm just having fun looking through all of those pictures!
