You all know I LOVE prim, but I can't make my kids like it too. So, I let them decorate their rooms how they want. Since my son cleaned his room, donated a bunch of his toys, and took his loft bed down Steve helped him rearrange his room. Recently my son has been getting into trucks, trailers, and model cars. So Steve worked around that. Oh did I mention Steve is into the same things??? LOL
Anyway, Steve's work has slowed down tremendously so he has been busy redecorating my son's room. My son just loves it!!!! I'm not sure if Steve is having more fun and excited since he never had a room like this as a kid. But I still can't believe Steve gave my son a bunch of his things to decorate his room from his own home.
I just thought I'd show you my son's new room.
Steve made this huge shelf for all these cars and trucks. Most of them are his and he is letting my son use them.
I made the rag quilt a few years ago. The shelf next to the bed was my grandmother's. The bed belonged to my great aunt. It is actually a 3/4 bed.
Steve drew all of these!!! I only wish I had this talent.
Of course my son had to try to duplicate the drawings. LOL.
And of course a trash to treasure desk... Steve painted it and my son put the decals on it. I think he went a little overboard. LOL.
Of course then he has car posters that were Steve's hung all over his walls. (sigh) My son is growing up. Gone are the days of cartoons and Thomas the train. Now there are mustangs, corvettes, and talk of girls. He's only 11. Guess I better enjoy what time I have left with him.
By the time you read this I will be starting my busy day. I have a meeting at the school at 7:30am for my daughter's IEP. This will be the last one before she goes to college in 3 years. Once again where did time go? Then I have the dreaded female doctor appointment today. IICCKKK!!!! I dread going so much that most times I start sweating profusely. I know it's for my own good since I had the start of cervical cancer before I had my hysterectomy. Then at 6:15pm I have a parent teacher conference with my son's teachers. My son, who hates writing and reading, and had a D but says he brought it up to a C. He can do much better he just doesn't want to. Boys.... what can I say.
I went to a new Goodwill in the town I grew up in on Saturday. I found some great things, but I'll wait to show you another day. I am so excited another great place to find diamonds in the rough.
