This weekend we did some rearranging of books. This is part of a larger project to rearrange bedrooms and help provide everyone in our family with what they need. First we pulled out our small bookcase into the hallway and filled it with the children’s books.
Emily and Nathan immediately took to their space. The rug is laid out at the top of the stairs in front of the bookcase, making a really cozy reading spot. We read scriptures here and during rest and read time, Emily will come out and read on the rug sometimes.
I also quickly realized that I would have to concede control of this shelf. I’m hoping the joy of taking off books in droves will fade over time.
We took all of the floating shelves out of the kids room and installed them in ours. Andrew kindly spent Saturday afternoon putting them up and then I filled them. I love love love not stepping on and around piles of binders and books that were previously on our floor OR reclaiming books from the kids room that I rather they didn’t play with.
