Debbie had a great idea about how to get some significant storage space out of a previously unused area in our laundry room. We put up shelving along an 8 foot wall and got 40+ cubic feet to put boxes. It will also help with homeschooling.

In addition, we found out that our son Barrett can seriously clean up a room if he has the motivation. I was impressed with the transformation in the room after he went through it.

And one cute kid story: Debbie was giving me a hug before I left for work earlier this week and Erik (6) walked up and gave us a big embrace, saying “Hug Group!”
