Packing my Room

Hi friends!

I am moving! Not to another webpage or another city, but to a house! The very first house I've ever lived in! I'm very excited. I can't wait to move into my new room. But, first things first, I had to pack.

My new neighbor, Kanani, came over to my old apartment to help me pack.

First, we decided to pack the things on my desk. Since it's summertime, I won't have any schoolwork to do for awhile!

Kanani put all my books away...

...and then my pens, pencils, and money. "Charlie!" she mused. "You really shouldn't leave your money lying around!"

"Or my cookies!" I said as she picked up the ever-present box of Oreos from my desk. "I better go put these with the food in the kitchen."

The box with my stuff got fuller!

"Look, your desk is almost empty, except for Norman!" Kanani said.

"Norman goes in the car, along with me and Rory. No box for him!" I said. "Now time to pack my nightstand! I guess my phone can go in here for a bit."

I put everything from my nightstand in the box - my alarm clock, my ring, my picture frame with Margot and I in it (before she cut her hair!), and my plant!

Once that was all done, I packed up my clarinet. I couldn't wait to make music in my new house!

"Wow..." Kanani said.

"...Look at all this stuff! We've packed up a lot, Charlie!"

"And we're not done yet!" I added. After that, Kanani helped me fold up my bedding.

Then I said, "Check out this big box my mom gave me for all my toys and books! It's huge."

First we packed up all my figurines and games...

...then we added my books...

...and then Kanani helped me get the toys off of my wardrobe by standing on a chair to reach them (don't tell my mom and dad!).

Finally, the box was full, my toys were packed, and it was time to take my decorations off of the wall.

"Thanks for helping me, Kanani!" I said.

"You're welcome!" she replied. "I can't wait until you're all moved in and we can play together all the time!"

"Me too," I said. "Me too."

Have you ever moved? Do you live in a house or an apartment? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Moving is a lot of work! Can't wait to see your new house Charlie!

    1. I can't wait for you to see it, either! I'm still getting it set up but it's going to be so pretty when it's done! :)

  2. Looks like Kanani was a real help! I'm actually moving some time this summer and am also in the process of packing - it's a lot of work!

    You really shouldn't leave your money and cookies lying around, hehe. :P


    1. Oh boy! Isn't moving a pain? I'm glad it's almost done - now I just have to unpack! And I am definitely going to be more careful about my money and cookies from now on!

  3. It must really be exciting to be moving! We have always lived in the same house and we have so much stuff that I can't imagine moving it all! You and Kanani are doing a great job, though.

    1. I am excited to get the moving over with! It will be worth it when it's done though. :)
