getting there...

Spent the weekend moving the girls rooms. Making a "sleeping room" and a "play room". Boy, what a job! Not more than I expected, but it was definitely challenging with an (almost) two year old under foot and a 5 year old who thought she had better ideas for how it all should be done (I don't know where she gets that from...) So, here is what we've been up to... it's not finished but we're getting there! We still have art work to hang, and a few other finishing touches, but it's a heck of a lot further along than it was two days ago! Thank heavens.

The play room closet.

Toys, toys, toys... organized and in their place.
(We'll see how long that lasts!)

A place to play!

A place to read!

And a place to sleep!

(eventually when Meritt gets bigger she will have a matching bed to Miss B's)
To hang above their beds, will be some special art work I'm working on now...
I'll show you more when I get it done!

Mandy, the girls room looks amazing, the play room too! Don't get discouraged about the adjustment to the girls sleeping in the same room, Lance & Ry did it for years and really missed each other when they finally seperated.

Thanks for the encouragment! Each night seems to be getting a little easier and a little easier... I really hope this decision will bring them only closer! Everyone I've talked with says kids grow a deeper bond sharing space, and feel safer too. So, hopefully the new set up will be a great one!
