OK, I'm finally getting my second wind! Today has been great! Yesterday, Steve and I sorted through all of Andrew, Jessica, and older boy's clothes. We got rid of everything that didn't fit or they didn't wear. I think this will help them be able to actually shut their drawers. God has blessed us with clothes behond anything you can imagine. I need to get better about keeping them moving though. I think I have at least 20 boxes of clothes in my shed and in the closet. It's crazy!
We also moved everyone's toys to Jacob's room. So it is the toy room and baby room. All he does is sleep in there, so this creates more room in everyone's rooms. The crib broke but instead of replacing it I've decided to just keep Jacob in the playpen. It's safer, if you think about it. It's portable and it takes up a lot less room.
We moved the toddler bed from Jacob's room to Josh and Marcus'. Jessica will not be sleeping on the floor anymore, but in the toddler bed(she loves this idea!) She'll sleep there until the new baby comes. Then I will move her into her room with Jacob. Andrew will go from Jess's room to the toddler bed in the boys room. Whew! If you caught up with that I'm amazed!
I called Rachel this morning. I knew she was getting ready for our camping trip and was all by herself with the 4 kids. Not a good combination. So I asked if the kids could come over and play for awhile so she could run errands or do whatever she needed to do. She was thrilled! So the kids are over rightnow. We just at peanut butter and jelly sands and apple slices. Man, that was a lot of kids around the table! 9 kids! They are being so good! Hannah (the one year old) hasn't fussed once. I was kind of scared to take her because last time she screamed not-stop for 3 hours! I'm glad she's grown out of that.
OK, I'm hearing some screaming I need to scoot!
