Trading Spaces

This is what the boys' room looked like today. In a few weeks, it will - hopefully - look very different. There's a big project going down.

When we first moved into this house 2 1/2 years ago, Everett was still co-sleeping, the big boys wanted to share a room, and of course the baby wasn't even yet conceived. So this three-bedroom house had more than enough rooms, and everyone was happy. Now though, things have changed, and we're experiencing some growing pains. We talked about the solutions, and a project was born. Spencer and Paxton will be moving (along with all their stuff) to the toy room slash spare room slash guest room slash all-around major thorn-in-my-side.

This will mean sorting through the toys and games and books and STUFF that is already there, and moving the younger things to their old room that will now be shared by Everett and Tegan... and either tossing, donating, or organizing the rest. It will mean moving furniture, posters, trophies and doo-dads. It will mean time and energy and decorating and painting. My big hope and prayer though is that it will mean 4 happy kids when it's all completed.

What a project! Those toys, wow. You could have a huge Toy sale, I mean huge.

I can't wait to see the final result. Seeing this blog makes me think of what's to come with our new little one. We'll be switching rooms with Ayla so that the two kiddies can have the super big bedroom.
