Bedtime

This is what bedtime looks like. 
They make their beds and clean their room before they get tucked in. This starts at 8:00. 
By 9:00 at least 3 out of 4 of them have already come out once for a drink, or with another excuse. Hailey always makes her way into Gracie's bed, and they all giggle and sing and play. By about 10:00 they are *usually* asleep.
Tonight around 11:00 I brought a sleeping boy back in, (after he jumped and fell off his bed and hit his face needing ice earlier) only to find that two of the beds had been pushed together with the blankets tented over the headboards. 
When I went back in an hour later, the tents were down, but the room was still destroyed. Evidence of the 2 hours of shenanigans that happen nightly when they're supposed to be going to sleep. These kids. ❤ 
Even if we had the room, they would share one bedroom. It's a closeness that they wouldn't have otherwise.
