So here's what we came up with for a schoolroom:
This little room used to be a porch add-on, then was enclosed to be a small room off the living room and kitchen. My husband, son, and oldest daughter put in the shelves when we first moved here and I've used it as a library, study, sewing nook and now it's our "study/schoolroom." I was so tickled to find this beautiful aqua sort of paint in our local hardware store. My desk is under the window; three girls currently share the table; one has the old computer desk on the right and Peanut has the cute little roll-top we found at a resale store in beautiful shape.
This morning we had a noble effort at making our schedule work and it went fairly well (a few attitude problems, mostly, for which apologies were made). In the afternoon we loosened up because my aunt came for lunch. Since she's a former missionary schoolteacher, she was happy to help the Peanut with her math workbook. Then we went for a walk in the delightful weather and beautiful outdoors.
Another time I'll show you the results of the great canning that is going on right now.
