We have the luxury of a bonus room which has been designated as our schoolroom. After six years of homeschooling in our old house, having to share the kitchen table for school and meals and store everything in the pantry, it is so nice to have a designated room for all of our "school" stuff. We lined the walls with bookcases from Target, and all our books are somewhat organized by category. We usually sit at the table for schoolwork, but when the weather is nice, we take it outside, and big brother has his own desk this year as he is doing more independent work. We have one big window which gives us good natural light, and by positioning the fan in front of the a/c vent, the temperature is comfortable most days. July is the worst for the heat upstairs, but that is the month we usually take time off from school. The ceiling is too low for a ceiling fan. These photos were taken on a good day, but we try to keep the clutter under control.
