|Summer Bucket List|
We have a few not-back-to-school traditions around here:
Mama starts getting up early again...(no picture at 5:30, but trust me, I looked like merry sunshine)
New school supplies (maybe my favorite thing ever)...
Dessert for breakfast...
|Early morning cherry pie|
And of course, pictures on the back step...
|Poor girl has allergies like nobody's business right now. She really is happy about school, I promise.|
School Room Reality
Listen, I love looking at gorgeous school rooms as much as the next girl. And they really are inspirational, aren't they? (Have you seen Sara's? How about Ann's? Or OMSH's? And yes, I have stolen ideas from all of these).
But over here in the reality of we-live-in-an-old-farmhouse, we don't have an extra room to reserve just for school, as much as I would LOVE that. I think most homeschool moms have kids who do school at the kitchen table, right?. My table was in the picture above with the new pencils. And I do love it. Here are some other little things in my school-house that we love:
|Reading nook in playroom? Idea stolen, natch.|
|Beginnings of a gallery wall in living room|
|Coffee table repurposed as a kid desk area|
|Reminders for the teacher. Er, I meant students.|
|Back to school gift from Grandma's garden|
|Dining room photo wall|
So that is the grand tour of little changes we've made to the house since last year. Nothing major, but we are always tinkering around.
Have I told you lately how much I love these girls?!
I didn't know if you knew, so I'm taking this chance to say, that I had the best day with you, today.
