Let's take closer look:
Contents of this pile include
- 4 back packs
- 1 gym bag--buried under the purple back pack, just to the left of the saxophone-- (Drew's basketball jersey and shoes)
- 1 lunch bag (an escapee of a back pack)
- a bag of bags--far left-- (that needs to be taken back to the van for the next grocery trip)
- a sweatshirt (that needs to be put in the laundry)
But, I guess the good news is that a) I have 2 musical sons, b) these middle-school aged sons brought work home with them (hence the stuffed back packs), c) we know where to find everything at 6:45am, d) this, too, shall pass.
When we move this spring, I have big plans for our new "mud room" of sorts (thanks, Pinterest!):

In the mean time, any suggestions on what to do with this mess? When we have company over, it goes in the laundry room on top of the deep freeze...
