Gideon Ameli of Plymouth hangs out in a bedroom containing something for most aspects of his life. Bunk beds and a futon enable him to invite two friends for a sleep over. At age 5, he already has homework, so he needs a desk. A basketball hoop is off camera. The futon doubles as a place for Gideon to sit during disciplinary time outs until he can leave the room “with a cheerful heart.” (Sun staff photo by Susan Van Cleaf)
