It's taken me a couple weeks but I can finally say our school room is clean, organized and ready to be messed up all over again. I know the inevitable will happen, but boy does it feel good to know where everything is and have a place for everything!
It's amazing how much can be accumulated over the year. The bulk of my time organizing the school room was spent going through all the kids school and art work. I had such a hard time throwing anything away. I made myself get rid of a lot but I kept the bulk of their artwork. I know I am bias but it is just all so good. I found some big storage containers to store their masterpieces in. They will stay safe and sound until I need to pull them out and reminisce on their childhood someday.
We only have 2 bedrooms but have been so blessed to have an enclosed porch at the front of our house. It has had many transformations over the years, but I think I have finally found the perfect set up. Not only we do school in this room, but it also our art and lego room.
Most days the legos and craft projects take over the room; making it hard to find a clear spot but I am so thankful that we have a creative space for the kids to create and learn. Sometimes it doubles as my sewing and craft room also.
I was tempted to buy new storage and but have tried to make do with what we have, forcing me to be creative and think outside of the box.
I am sure our school room will continue to metamorphosize as our needs change and the kids grow, but for now I am thankful for this little space that produces so much creativity and learning.
Do you have a school room?
If not how do you make do with the space you have?
Do you have a hard time throwing away your children's artwork?
