More Hardwood

On Friday night the kiddos & I went to watch our oldest play in the marching band. While we were gone he removed EVERYTHING from Dori's room and pulled up the carpet. He had to remove a little paint from the hardwood, but overall it wasn't much work. He polished it and has put up quarter round along the base boards. I spent a bunch of time yesterday going through all the piles from the room and I've purged at least half of it. I've handed off most of the clothes to Dori's BFF and pulled out small toys, dolls, stuffed animals, and lots of other junk. Today I am going to put the rest back in her room. Usually her room is a mess, but I hope with having a lot less stuff that she will be able to keep it clean. I will be encouraging her in this area. Our room and bathroom are staying nice and we've actually been dusting & sweeping a lot. Something we usually ignore.
