Ever since we bought this house 4 years ago, we’ve been playing musical bedrooms (which if you’ve been around for awhile, you’ve no doubt read about) Today, prompted by a great Craigslist deal on a new bed for Everett, we began our most recent – and what I’m hoping is our last – room project. The goal is to keep everyone happy and comfortable until we can pay off our debt and see about moving out of here…. some day.
The catalyst this time was Paxton, who was no longer happy sharing with his younger siblings. Spencer, who up until today has had his own room since the last Great Room Swap, decided he’d be willing to share once again. They both stay up late and sleep all morning, making them pretty ideal roommates.

We worked all afternoon, and into the evening. We are not done yet (lots of piles of… stuff… still to be sorted through in the little kids’ room) but the big boys’ room is done and ready to go, save for their own personal touches. They have big plans to outfit it with a mini-fridge, turning it into their own little dorm room.
We will hopefully get finished up in Everett and Tegan’s room tomorrow, and in the meantime, everyone is going to bed happy.
