Claire left home in August 2013 to head to Chicago and attend Moody Bible Institute.
She was in the States until December 2017 when she moved back to the Czech Republic as a missionary with Josiah Venture. She lived at home for a few months until she moved into her apartment where she lives now.
But until today, her room stayed exactly the same as it was the day she left in 2013!
We've been saying for over a year that it would be great to go through everything in her drawers and closet, to sort it, save things, throw away unnecessary items, and turn her room into more of a guest room.
Today was finally that day! I would never imagined that it would be nine hours of work today, going through everything. But as we started in, I realized that this sort of job is not a quick one! You have to take time to look at every paper and picture, and then make a decision.

We moved furniture around, "shopped" in the rest of the house for missing pieces, and even found a spot for the crib to stay out for when our new grandson (due in December) is staying overnight!
Oh how happy my Grandma France would have been to see this change! She was a great furniture mover back in her day, even up to her 90's! I'm not a big furniture mover, so it would have tickled her to know that I thought of her when I did this with Claire.

The room looks amazing...fun to share the memories of treasures from Claire's childhood bedroom.
