In addition to the art desk corner, we picked up all the toys from the rest of the basement and did a good vacuum/sweeping. This was quite necessary due to the fact that Lincoln had dumped and scattered the entire container of pea gravel Emily had collected from parks over the summer all over the floor. :op With everything cleared away, the kids were finally able to both use their plasma cars at the same time.
And yes, I realize Lincoln is barefoot and Emily thinks it's July. Sometimes you have to pick your battles. ;o)
