I've been a little busy getting our homeschool underway. I wrote up schedules for the month on Tuesday and our first official day was Wednesday. Today went very smoothly, which bodes well for the year.
Tonight we are rearranging the "back room" to turn it into the official school room. We call it the back room for lack of a better term and because it's at the back of the house. Right now it's a mess with books piled everywhere so we can move the bookshelves. I should be in there working, but I needed a break.
We've always just "done school" all over the house...usually the kitchen table and the living room, but I'm tired of moving piles of books to set the table and stepping over books and papers in the living room. We had a couple of shelves in the office, two bookshelves full of books in the back room, and bits and pieces everywhere. I'm sure the boys will still do their reading in the living room, but now they will have a better place to keep all their books and supplies.
Our oldest son has pretty much taken over the back room for his Xbox. Sorry Tyler, but we don't have the luxury of an Xbox room in our little house. I'm taking it back. You'll get over it.
While I was rearranging I found this typeset tray that I picked up at a fund raiser sale this summer. I'd forgotten it was tucked in a corner of this room. I'm not sure what I want to do with it yet. Any ideas?
I love the handle with the name "Hamilton Mfg. Co. on it.
The room is going to have to wait until tomorrow to get finished. I'm too pooped tonight! Oh...Great news! Our new window (that's been waiting in our barn for 3 months) is finally getting installed tomorrow. Yessssss!!! Pray no one drops it!
