|Selah's second year of snow play|
Today I have plans to go through the snow gear, get rid of anything too small for Bella and make the system more user friendly. Since we have a decent sized coat closet and cubbies for hats and gloves, I may be able to not have to pack it all away to the point it's an all-mom event to get it out.

I spent the majority of one day reorganizing these school cubes. The top five baskets are now labeled with the five younger children's names and they hold their Playmobiles. This has proven to be a good system of controlling extra mess and lost pieces for things that I'm unwilling to release to the down-stairs playroom. We get the baskets down and they play away in the school room, but then they all get put back up when the session is over. As soon as the game room in the basement is done, we are creating a "Legoland" that will have a small bookshelf and plastic baskets for each child's Legos and free the bedrooms from that mess as well.
I realized as I was blogging that I heard them all playing in there, so I went and snapped these action pictures.
I wish Playmobiles were around when I was a kid - I would have loved them!
