We had 4 people come to help us make the basement more usable. They spent a week painting, stenciling, buying furniture and turning the basement into a fun, relaxing area for the girls. There are beanbags, fluffy carpets, pillows, books, puzzles, pretty lamps, and games to play. There are beautiful pink walls with stenciled butterflies and trees and leaves all over the place.
When the girls first went down to the basement after all the work was done, they immediately went to the sofa with the stuffed animals on it and each of them picked one up. They were all expressing how much they liked the place with their “wows” and “oohs” and “ahhs”. It was fun to watch them experience the joy in knowing this place was for them.
And a huge thank you to those who made it possible!
