School Room Pics

Here's a few pictures of our new school room.   There are still a few more things I want to get put up in there, but for the most part it is done.

This first picture is of the whole area.   Around the top of the room I have a timeline.   The top rain gutter shelf holds  all of our Sonlight Core 3 books.   The other gutter shelves are just for free reading.   I have a magnetic calender I still want to hang on either side of the pass through (if we haven't lost all the magnetic numbers through this whole process!), and maybe hang some of the kids' art work.   If you look closely down the hallway you can see a chalkboard.    We don't really use this for school, but the kids all enjoy drawing and writing on it.  

This picture is of the wall that you can't see in the other shot.   I plan on moving the map up and placing assignment lists for the boys above the cubbies.   More on that if I ever get it finished!   Each kid has their own cubbies for all their schoolbooks (they are the messy ones, in case you were wondering).   The rest of the cubbies hold my teachers manuals and books we are currently using.

Apple Picking


Thursday we went to pick apples.   It was 90 degrees.   Not exactly ideal apple picking weather . . . but we had a great time anyway!   We were dripping with sweat and picked half of what we planned, but the experience was well worth it.

Rain Gutter Bookshelves

We're finally moved into our addition!!!   I'll be posting more pics over the next several weeks as we get things looking the way we want them, but I wanted to share our rain gutter bookshelves with you.   Yep . . . you heard that right.   Rain gutters.    I first heard about these several years ago and couldn't wait to use them.   Here's how they look!



Super easy, inexpensive and I think they look great.  

If you want in depth instructions on how to make them, here it is.

I ♥ Faces -Smirk

This week's theme is 'smirk'.   I think this picture of Sarah from last week is definitely a smirk!   Make sure you head over to I Heart Faces to check out the other smirky photos.

Happy Birthday, Jada!!

Happy 5th Birthday, sweet Jada!!

You are a joy to have around and brighten all of our days with your silliness and wonderful sense of humor.   I love snuggling with you on the couch (even when you use my shirt as a silky).   We love you and proud of the girl you are!
