Jessica’s goal for this week past was to reclaim the hobby room. The Hobby Room was intended to be a place where Josh and Jess could have their puzzles, and lego and projects out of harms way when we had two little toddlers. Those two little toddlers have grown up now (Nomi and Daniel at 11yo and 9yo) and the Hobby Room has had shorts bursts of being used for Hobbies but is really a storeroom, of junk proportions. At our planning week meetings earlier in the year we discussed ways with the kids of making this room functional for all four of them. Jess cleaning it out and organizing is the first step. She has done very well – we have boxes and boxes to give away, we have thrown out even more boxes. She has sorted bookcases, cupboards and boxes. She loves this type of challenge.
The next step is to buy some bookcases (can a family ever have too many bookcases?) and to hoist the electric train table up to the ceiling giving functional room underneath. These are both my tasks!
