Napping? Nah...

We heard some noises coming from Kara's room towards the end of her naptime so Jim went in there to check on her. He asked me if I had done anything with her clothes. I had not. He said, get the camera and go see her, quick!

This is what I saw:

She had taken almost all of her clothes out of her dresser, separated all of her school uniforms by color and lined them all up on the floor...
They both line up everything they can find - I wonder what this means??
