Homeschool Corner

We live in a small ranch style home that is approximately 1200 sq ft.  I love it!  When people see our house and then see the amount of children we have, they sometimes are surprised we fit.  My feeling is that there are families in other countries who live in mud huts the size of one of the kids bedrooms with all of their family members, sometimes including extended family members.  We are blessed beyond belief to have the size house that we have. 

Our school area is also our living room.  The way our living room is arranged, the "living" area is on one side (with a little bit of overflow from the homeschooling items) and the homeschooling is on the other side, more of a corner. 

Here is the school corner ...

And here is the overflow behind our couch ...
The white bookcase was made by my husband.  Yes, it was!  He did such a great job!  I found the bottom part of the bookcase (the cabinet with 5 doors) on a local sales network website.  I originally had the idea of putting it in the laundry room for a pantry, but then my brilliant husband came up with this bookcase.  It is fantastic.  I love how it covers almost the whole wall so we use as much space as possible. 

This is where we spend our days.  The kids use their table all throughout the day for schoolwork, crafts, games, you name it.  I love this area.  I love that when people walk in our home they see that our children are our priority. 

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
