Today is the big day: we begin our new curriculum . And I wanted to share some photos of our school room (formerly our oldest daughter's bedroom) with you. It's one of my favorite rooms in our house. :)
My hubby is a carpenter - the (indulge me, please, while I brag on my man) best carpenter because he learned from the best: my beloved father-in-law.
So when I casually mentioned to him that I would like some bookshelves for school books in the play room, I could see the wheels starting to turn. And he started spitting out suggestions faster than I could process them! What we ended up with is a wonderful room full of bookshelves, maps, and well, it's what I consider a room full of learning.....
Now, let me clarify something. Just because we have a school room doesn't mean that we're confined to that room when we do our lessons. It is a wonderful place to have school, but we're not in that room all day every day.
We believe that home education is not about a room. As Charlotte Mason said, "Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life."
Hope you enjoyed the "tour" of our dual-purpose school room. :)
