Come Tour My House! The School Room

Here's where the learnin' happens, or at least book work. We all know that in homeschool families learning is not limited to book time (and hopefully this is true of most families, homeschool or not). Do you think I should replace that lovely towel with a real curtain?

I always swore I wouldn't have a school room because it made it so hard to move. You always have to find a house with an extra room. And frankly, it's quite likely that we'll move several times through the years. Well, so far I've been fortunate and this house and our last one actually had an extra room. It's nice to have a place to stash my school stuff, but I don't want to get locked into it to the point that it limits my house choices.

Can you tell that books are our weakness?

On the little wall I have the Declaration of Independence (from a garage sale) and a vintage children's chalk board (free).

Since I'm all about honesty here, I will say that I purposely left out the two corners of the room that are filled with ugly boxes and storage tubs (head high at that), and also my messy computer desk. I hope to get those areas sorted and organized soon. Till then I'm not showing you the rest of the room!!!

I'm convinced that one can never have enough book shelves!

You have a school room! Too cool! This will be my first year as a "home-school mom". (Visit my blog and leaves LOTS of advice. I need it!) I am so excited to see what the girls will teach me.
I wish that we had a wonderful room, like the one that you have been blessed with.
As far as books, the job I left to do this was being a librarian at a christian school. I understand what "book love" is all about.
Love your blog! I'll come back again SOON!
