We've invited a kid in Gareth's grade over after school on Monday, so that was an excellent motivator in getting the room somewhat organized. I'd purchased some under-bed storage containers a couple weeks ago, thinking they'd be good for putting out of season clothes in. Since we haven't figured out what to do with their closet yet, I used those today to put all of their clothes in. This emptied the bookshelf to use for toys. We still have one box of things to sort out. Plus I want to get some curtain rods and hang the book bags we had in the rental next to the bunk bed, 3 for each of them to store books/kindle/little trinkets. But at least the floor space isn't entirely covered in clothes and toys anymore.

The boys both wanted additional pictures of themselves:
We still have work to be done gradually. The door scrapes on the floor when it gets about halfway closed, so we need to figure that out. And the windows and closet as already mentioned. We haven't hung anything on the walls yet and I'd like to paint the room. An area rug for the floor might also be in the cards since to little kids walking = stomping. It frequently sounds like we've got a herd of elephants, not children, in the house.
