Wendy - 8th, Mark - 2nd and Brian - 4th.
We ended up losing power last night sometime before 7pm, so before showers and hair clean-ups. It came on for a brief moment when Mark went into the shower, only to go out again while he was in there. If you imagined some holloring - you imagined correctly.
It didn't come back on again until sometime after midnight. I was sound asleep, so I don't really know.
Anyway - it all made for some interesting back to school prep. I took scissors to Mark's hair instead of the clippers, and bedtime stories (dad surprised us and happened to be home) was by flashlight. It all worked. It was definitely the easiest time we've ever had getting the kids to bed that night before the first day of school.
I found the new clothes and paperwork this morning. Even I was all tucked in by 10.
Here's to a great school year.
