Today we did some rearranging.
Bennet's Thomas the Train bed had been moved from his room to Lydia's. They shared her room while Teresa slept in Bennet's room, surrounded by the boys' dressers. The nursery, on the first floor, was the play room / James' bedroom. The rest of the family slept upstairs and I'd often lay in bed thinking of how Travis would get James from his room if someone ever broke into the house. Because the other kids would be hidden in a closet, protected by me with the shotgun, on the phone with 911. Of course.
But now the boys are sharing Bennet's room and the girls are sharing Lydia's room and the nursery is just the playroom. It's lovely. Naptime was a little tricky for James, and bedtime wasn't as smooth as usual, but now everyone is sleeping. Peacefully. Soundly. And not an intruder in sight.
I'll post pictures of the rooms later.
And that's all I have to say.
So, if you want, you can go read my little "Meet a Reader" interview that I did with the lovely Nancy at The Reading Catholic.
