This is probably going to be a more detailed post than most people really care to read, but if you’re interested in hearing about how we made it through two large airports with four children and tons of stuff, read on. If not, I’ll write about something more exciting soon. 🙂
We packed as lightly as we reasonably thought we could, knowing that we needed to live with only what we had in our bags for probably four to six weeks. But we still ended up with 23 pieces of luggage that needed to be handled. There are six of us, after all. And truth be told, not one of us is good at going without.
Some bags were small — my purse, the kids’ backpacks, Matt’s laptop bag — but some were HUGE. We had six large LL Bean rolling duffle bags, in addition to two old rolling suitcases and a large garment bag. Plus everyone had a carry-on bag. And we had two booster car seats that Owen and Quinn still need. That’s a lot of luggage to manage.
