When we moved to Japan, the only things Ethan brought for his bedroom was a map he'd made, a few Playmobil vikings, other small mementos to remind him of home, and some books. As hard as it is for me, I've allowed Ethan to decorate his room as he pleases. Ok, ok, so maybe I've had a say in the decoration a little....
We lovingly call this room Ethan's bachelor pad, as he's been spending more and more time in there, listening to music, or playing his guitars. Wanna take a look around?
|Ethan has filled his bulletin board with pictures of my uncle Herman, when he was a young man in WWII. My mom was sweet enough to send Ethan copies of these.|
|Oh, that couch. It was in the living room, until we bought a nice, new one. But Ethan loves it.|
|Ethan's two guitars. The acoustic we found in the apartment when we moved in, and the electric we bought him for Christmas last year. I'm amazed at how much he's improved!|
|Besides playing guitar, Ethan's other hobby is making model airplanes, particularly WWII era. These are not fun for me to dust.|
|Just a portion of the map Ethan made about 2 years ago. It takes up one whole wall.|
