In anticipation of a new school table, I moved the bench that went with our old table into the family room. I stole a few fabric drawers from Sarah's closet to place underneath to store some toys for Sarah (and Alex here soon). I brought the Thomas trains in from the garage, thinking Alex would start playing with them in the next few months. All three girls got them out right away and played most of the day.
The bench is the perfect place to play. I have a feeling I'm going to catch lots and lots of cute moments like this over the next several years at this spot! And ... girls love Thomas trains, too! (I'm not going to say just as much as boys, though. My boys were obsessed with Thomas at Sarah's age, LOL).
