Rearranging the Playroom...
Once we decided that we were going to bring the piano home with us (at about 8pm on Wednesday night), we knew that the playroom was going to need to be rearranged. It was 11:30 when I decided that I was going to move furniture. I know that sounds completely crazy (especially since Father John had done the reasonable thing and turned in for the night already!), but I knew that it would be hard to do with the little ones and I also really wanted things to look great when the piano arrived in the morning!
We had already moved the futon to the little alcove and so I pushed and pulled those bookcases across the room so that we could create a little reading nook. Then the toys that had occupied the the space where the futon and bookshelves had been were moved to their new spot near the children's table. I was able to rearrange things, organize and tidy, and sweep the floor in about an hour and a half. It was so exciting to see everyone's faces in the morning! I still miss the cube bookshelves by the other window, but it is nice to have a little reading nook!
