2016 Packing Party Eve Eve
Can it really be here again? Once more it's packing party eve eve. Well, I suppose technically it's really packing party eve since we kick off tomorrow with a morning mini packing party with a Christian school group and going into the evening with our youth packing party.
Though I know it will happen each year, it can be hard to believe when you look at the sheer amount of work that needs to be accomplished.
As always, though, God brought the right people at the right time. We didn't have huge numbers of volunteers for packing party prep, but those we did have knew how to work hard and were a tenacious bunch for sure.
Late this afternoon as I was still sorting tote bands I wondered if they'd ever all get rolled and rubber banded, but by this evening the task was finished. All but one pallet of boxes are labeled, also.
This morning I hauled 25 bags of larger stuffed animals for 2-4 year old boxes out of my attic. It's looking a bit empty up there now.
The four trucks are in place, the first 175 cartons are assembled and taped, and we're ready to...
let the packing begin...
