As the official calendar school year winds to a close, I try to purge, dust, organize, revamp, and refresh our schoolroom before we start school for the summer. Even though we start the “year” with good intentions, it seems like the busyness of our days tends to cause things to get stacked up or stashed here and there, and then lots of time is wasted trying to find things when we need them.
I decided to tackle the schoolroom last week, but I still have piles of books everywhere due to the death of my son’s precious kitty, a birthday party, a fencing tournament, fostering another mommy cat with SIX kittens, pet-sitting a chameleon as big as my arm, babying our chickens, and trying to keep our dog from chewing his own legs off (he’s headed for the “cone of shame” as soon as we can find one that fits him and that he can’t squirm out of–I’ve already made three trips to Petsmart and spent an unreasonable amount of $ at the vet’s.)
The set up of our room works really well, with our table in the center of the room for everyone to gather around. I love having bookcases along three or our schoolroom walls, since my kids love books as much as I do, and we find it hard to part with them once they become old friends. Plus, I know we’ll be revisiting many titles with my youngest. My goals are to have a clean and organized room with a cleared table-top and a reading corner for my youngest before we start summer school. Hopefully, I’ll have an “after” photo to share soon.Share this:
