After three moves in 2 years - yes you read that right - we are finally settling into our 'forever' home out in the country. We have 3 1/2 acres of our own, but we live right next door to a 100 acre farm. As I type, I'm watching the pretty little soybean plants billowing in the breeze along the hill out my window. After all the insanity we've endured, we are so blessed to call this place home. The best part.... our finished, walk-out basement has a large bedroom that has become our new school room. It even has a nice, big window and a walk-in closet. You bet I was drooling when we walked through this house!
So let's start the tour.
|The view as you walk in.|
|My 6th Grader on the left; My 3rd Grader on the right. |
My 8th Grader chose to work upstairs in her room to help her concentrate.
|Our center wall with all the great helps as we cover World Geography this year.|
|Our crates of books for My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures|

The sign on the wall above the chair says "Our Book Explorations" to go along with our geography theme and I've included this a freebie for all of you! I found little book-shaped cut-outs from the dollar store as well. When the kids finish a book throughout the year, we will write it on the 'book' and stick them up on the wall so they can see all they've read. I just find the 'Date/Title/Pages Read' reading logs a bit tedious. This is my attempt to keep it more visually motivating.
