They certainly do!
Man oh man! The past couple of weeks have been so crazy around my house.
Last week we decided to switch all of our rooms around. Before this, my son had his own room, my daughter her own room, we had the master bedroom and it's big enough where I could have my craft room in there too. Well I was getting really frustrated with all our homeschooling supplies in the dining room and craft stuff in the hall closet and was running different ideas by my hubby. Somehow we decided to put the kiddos together in the master bedroom, we would move into the bigger of the kid's old rooms, and we would turn the other room into a craft/school room.
In 5 days we painted the craft/school room, painted the master bedroom, moved all three rooms around ... which turned out to be a TON of work! But it's working out fabulously!
The kids happened to be going to grandma's house for those 5 days, so it ended up being a complete surprise for them when they got home (we did ask what they thought about sharing a room first because we didn't want that part to be a surprise). We bought colorful crates to hang on their wall and painted all of their wooden furniture in so many fun colors to tie everything in together.
I think the busiest part of this project (besides all of my craft supplies
was switching the closets. I didn't realize how much stuff I had crammed into the master bedroom closet!
And this week I wanted to make sure I got my big order in for the majority of our school supplies that we want for the first part of this school year. I ended up ordering a LOT of books!
: Can't wait to get them! I finally placed my orders this morning for everything except our art supplies as I'm still compiling that list. Whew!
Even though I haven't been able to be around here much, this thread has been in the back of my mind and I'm so glad that it isn't too long yet ... otherwise I probably wouldn't have been able to read the whole thing!
We are definitely an eclectic family and I've always thought of us as such. We pull from so many different philosophies that we just wouldn't be able to fit anywhere exclusively... so here we are! And we love it here.
