You know this continual goal I have of getting organized? Well, we are slowly making progress. I'm thrilled. My desire is to have a place for everything and everything in it's place. :) Granted with kids that is a tall order. But I want to continue to train them to pick after themselves, take care of the things we have been blessed with, and to be vigilant in helping to maintain order.
We've debated various ways to help our home to more effectively function and I think we've come up with some good ideas. I'm anxious to see how it will all play out. We built this house as our starter home 6 1/2 years ago and intended to stay for 5-7 years but we've decided to stay put for now. We love many things about our home and we really like the location...so for now, we are committed to making it work. I'm sure we will begin the search for a new house in a few years and I think that will be a bittersweet day. I just love that it's our first house and that we've brought all of our kiddos home here!
Anyway, I digress... We've (well, mostly me) been really pondering the play area and trying to figure out how to best organize the toys. We finally decided to do a modular unit and I think it will not only be functional but it will look nice. On a side note, do any of you find that toys seem to multiply while you sleep? It seems little junky toys are the worst offenders...you know, the ones I throw away all.the.time. Ugh. So tonight we are putting together the units to get ready for the great toy move. The move (in which not all toys will make the cut) will be a welcome change. We are also changing locations for the play area and moving it back to our loft. A big hooray from this need-to-be-organized-but-never-seem-to-manage-momma.
