I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Ours was busy as it was the opening weekend for the kids' Upwards basketball league. So we spent most of the morning and early afternoon at the kids' games. It was great though as I love watching them play. Sunday, we had church, went to Aldi, did some laundry and then I accomplished a huge decluttering project called "The boys' bedroom" LOL. Here are the befores::
Throughout the process, I went through EVERYTHING in their room and when it was all done I had a huge box of books and 2 trash bags of stuff to donate. I also had about a half a bag of trash. Here are the afters::
I am so happy that it is done and hopefully the boys will keep their room tidier now.
For now let's get on with the topics for "Happy Homemaker Monday" (hosted by the lovely Sandra over at "Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.") so that I can get to bed here soon.
