We kept a few books on the shelves. El’s favorites that have been read over and over. Junie B. Jones, Ivy and Bean, Little House on the Prairie,
and my favorite – the Beverly Cleary collection. Speaking of books El loves, she is currently obsessed with the Thea Stilton series. Very fun for 6-12 age girls! Ad is loving The Boxcar Children. Nothing like great children’s literature.
So that’s it! Not a major makeover, but it feels SO good to have all of our books boxed up and ready to move. It also feels amazing to walk into El’s room and not cringe! Organization just calms the mind, doesn’t it!? I can’t wait to start tackling spaces in the new house. I keep trying to convince Kenny that when the new house is finished we should keep living in our current house and I’ll just pop up to the new house to clean and organize and decorate it for a few hours each day. Once in a while he and the kids can come and visit. But only if they take their shoes off and don’t touch a thing.
