Heart of the Matter Meme - School Spot



Heart of the Matter meme this week asks us to share our school spaces. I'm happy to do so . . .


As we have had the opportunity to spread out a bit, for the first time ever we have an actual homeschool room. I absolutely love it and we spend the bulk of our school days in this room.

We have a beautiful view into the nearby woods and often enjoy a fresh breeze through the windows when the weather cooperates (not this morning). This also serves as our reading nook with easy access to all our books and I keep our library bag in between the two couches as well. I love this little area.


Most of our schooling takes place in the main part of the room where we have our craft supplies, our school supplies (in the closet), a computer, and lots of table space. The littles usually make a mess on the floor while we get our academics done and we try to always clean up before lunch and at the end of day.


The walls still seem bare and I plan to get something up . . . more maps, art?, etc. I haven't gotten far in that though, other than thinking that I want to think about it more.


I know we are quite spoiled with all this space as I have lived with a small spot in the kitchen for so long. We are thoroughly enjoying this area where we can all work together and focus on school in a space set up just for that.

As we blog our way through the school year, Homeschool Memoirs also asked that we share our school spaces.

the one thing I would really love is a window in our school room! I am a bit jealous of yours!...but then my middle would probably never hear anything I would say...too much to daydream about!

I love when I can throw the windows open in our school room and feel the cool breeze. :) You have such great blank walls to decorate. Share pictures when you do get to that project!!

We school in the dining room. You've got a great room there!

Ooooo. A room you can shut the door on when company arrives! How cool is that!
Many Blessings,

Anonymous,

LOL! Isn't that the truth!

My husband still sees it though, :-) so we do try to keep it pretty tidy.

Thanks for stopping in everyone!

Wow, what a nice space. For now we homeschool in the kitchen. I pray that one day we will have a room just for school. Or at least a closet to store our stuff!

What an awesome view...I can just imagine curling up in one of those chairs with a good book!

Beautiful room! I love it, too. I like the big picture window especially. That is one thing I like about the girls' room. We do some school out there just because it is like being outside. And we have bird feeders and a butterfly garden right outside their window so they enjoy watching the birds as well.

Oh I love how big your room is! How awesome to be able to spread out like that!

I can't think of anything nicer than a good view and a bookshelf full of books. Well, except some children to enjoy them with me.

Enjoy your new space!
