School Room

Warning:  This is not the way this room usually looks.  But, this is the way I love for it to look.  These days I resort to taking a picture when a room gets all the way clean.  At least then on my computer it looks clean!  Our schoolroom is in our Dining room.  This is right off the Kitchen and Living room/entry.  For years we did school in the kitchen and living room.  We still love to cuddle on the couch to read all our books.  But, most of the work now takes place in here.  

I finally have a white board and large map.  It's so nice to have a board to write things on.  Usually we write our Bible verse for the week on here.  The bookcases pictured below hold toys.  I like to keep toys put up and grouped together.  They also have the little girls books on them.  Well, some of their books.
My beautiful cabinet that my hubby made!  He did such a great job.  It was his first furniture project and I love the way it turned out.  It also has hidden child locks on it!  This holds all our current school books and some for the future.  Inside the bottom holds preschool things, construction paper, markers, etc.  All the things I need to keep out of reach of little hands.
Our Preschool corner is pictured below.  The table was a Christmas present for our girls.  I love it.  We had a Little Tykes plastic table that was warped from standing on it.  I always thought I wanted a white table and chairs.  The girls have taught me that dark is best. 

Now we have a wonderfully used Dining Room!  
Here's the lunch room.  The tree on the table was our Jesse Tree for Advent.  See my cute students!
