Where we school (most of the time)
A closer view shows tidy white shelves, a reality that changes as soon as baby arrives on the scene! He is learning to leave things alone, but usually not until after he has thoroughly explored them with dexterous little fingers. The white shelves also hold some books and a few board games as well as art supplies in boxes with lids and latches!
In Texas we had a huge school room with built-in cabinets and an entire wall of windows. Here I appreciate the need for everything to stay extremely organized. I welcome the chance for us all to develop the discipline to put everything where it goes immediately after we use it. The school area is not visible from the front door to the apartment, so I don't feel so bad if things are left on the table for a while, or if an art project is left out. My favorite thing about this school room is pegboard. I may just have it installed when we find a house of our own. We will take school on the road when we travel, or just to the park on a nice day. We will read together in our beds, couches and sometimes even at our dinner table over a snack or dessert! We will learn together while we cook, shop and serve others.
