New School Room

We have been rearranging and cleaning out the basement so I decided to move the school room to another location.  It was in the main part of the basement before and was a mixture of school and play things.  I thought that having a room specifically for school may be nice.  So, we moved it into the spare bedroom in the basement.

The kids have their own desks now and the room just feels less “busy” to me.

We are all looking forward to starting back up with lessons again come August.  A little change always makes things a bit more exciting and new.

We also found a better place to display our nature things and I just love the way it turned out.  Much more accessible and interesting.

    It looks great, Maria! Do you find that having a school room with desks for the kids is more beneficial than doing school at the kitchen table? I’d love to hear your thoughts on that one. We have never had the room for a school room until now and I’m trying to decide whether or not to take the plunge :-). Can you email me? Hugs!

    Now that I’m a week into it, I’m becoming aware of how critical organization is to the overall homeschooling plan & household management. I’m pooped! Guess it’s just one of those things you have to jump into and begin to sort out, huh? Now just to find time and energy! 😉

      I think it’s important to be organized but I know plenty of people who do an amazing job homeschooling and do it very diffently than I do. It all depends on your personality. But yes, jumping into it is the only way to figure out what you want/need to change and do. I would love to help you if you need it! Just say the word and I’m there! You don’t have to reinvent the wheel either, plenty of people have done all the hard work already. You just have to find what you want to use that helps. I have lots of ideas! 😉 If all else fails though, just read to and pray with them.
