Getting Ready for School
Good morning! The girls and I have been cleaning and organizing our school room and I thought I would give you a tour. It isn't a big room and as you will see, we have squeezed something into every corner.
Over to the right is our piano. This is the same piano I grew up with and I still enjoy playing it. I just learned the theme song to one of my favorite movies, The Notebook.
In another corner is the file cabinet (it's very scary in there!) and our supply cupboard.
The drawers never stay organized, but they hold ribbon and misc. craft supplies.
This is Grace's art table and she says she is going to do her school work here, too.
This used to be Grace's desk, but she gave it to Emily a few months ago.
Bookshelves in another corner. I haven't figured out where to put our new school books yet. Hmm...
And finally, my paper craft/card making stand. I love that I can reach everything while sitting at the table.
I use various containers for storage. Most of them are actually napkin boxes! Can you guess what my ribbon organizer was originally used for?
Cassette tapes! I found it at the resale store awhile back for $1.00.
I keep all of my scrapbook paper, cardstock and stickers in large hanging folders.
Folders for each color.
We have also had fun getting our new school supplies together. I love all the pencils, crayons, post-its, etc. Our school books have been ordered and will arrive any day and our official starting date is September 2. For those of you that are interested, we use the Sonlight curriculum and Horizons Math.
All of the local schools around here are starting today, as well as many of my blogging friends. So, whether you are a homeschool, private, or public school family, I wish you a wonderful year with lots of fun and learning!
