We did this for several reasons. Mainly, so she would be comfortable and get to know all of her sisters well. We wanted to see how each of them would relate to each other. We also did not know Alli at all, and wanted to make sure that everybody was safe, just in case. So she has been home more than 5 months, and all is well. Mike and I have missed our old room, and we figured it was time to split the party girls up. :)
Mike, because he was working in the shoppe didn't have much time to help. But when we couldn't get a screw in, or were beyond our capability....he came in and did what dad's and husbands do. He made it look EASY! :)
And as for me..... I will have fewer bruises! Our room is big enough not to run into the sharp corners on that bed! Ouch!
