I cleaned the corner cabinet and Katy cleaned her desk cabinet.
After the children were in bed for the evening, Jeff and I brainstormed about what we want to do with the gameroom. We are working to make it into a "playroom". We moved the TV on top of the corner cabinet and put the xbox and dvd's in the cabinet. That helps keep them out of sight and raises the TV out of low swinging reach of Clark and Quinn. The old shelf that we had the TV on became a nightstand in our guest room. We made plans to move the bookshelves and free up some wall space and we talked about toy storage and how we can help reduce the number of items out in the "playroom" at one time.

moving one of the bookshelves from the gameroom to the office/guest room, and made continued progress on getting the guest room ready for guests again. We also tackled Kent's room, since we have have plans to move Clark into Kent's room very soon. We are planning to make the boys room just a room for sleeping and have the play area in the gameroom. When we started on Kent's room we could barely see any of the floor under all of his Legos and paper trash collection. We've removed several 13 gallon size trash bags full of mostly paper trash and he will be learning how to better let go of the things he doesn't need to keep long term.

Week 13's challenge is "Pictures and Scrapbooks." I only had two days to work on this challenge, so I didn't get much done. I've learned over the last several years to delete the digital pictures that aren't very good and keep only what I really want. It cuts down on the clutter in my computer photo program. So for this week I downloaded the pictures from my camera from our trip and got rid of any that I didn't want to keep. Hopefully, I'll post some of them on my blog soon.
