Peaceful Playroom

I am a little embarrassed at how excited I am about the new look of our playroom/office. Last night, Brian and I spent about 3-1/2 hours cleaning out the toys and organizing them (and taking most of them to the basement for now while they await a new home!) We have our art supplies, books, blocks, cars, puzzles, school stuff, balls, doll house, and a few other toys each with a lovely, well-labeled home. After our orientation and tour to the new playroom this morning, Eila seems to enjoy it as much as I do. Josiah, on the other hand, likes to dump out the bins and climb in them and then leave the mess for Eila or I to clean up while he moves on to another box to dump.

This re-organization has been a long-time coming and I’m hoping that it will last and work for us. I will begin homeschooling with Eila tomorrow and wanted to have everything ready as well as needed to get the clutter under control. We have far too much stuff! If you are lacking in toys for kids under 4 years of age, I have plenty and will gladly give you a truckload or more.

    Can we have a picture of this refined area in your house? I need some inspiration. Belle has been asking to “do school” for a few days, but I don’t have the energy yet. Are you doing the same curriculum as last year? I plan on starting at the beginning and maybe also aligning it with church for the Bible content.

    I will try to post a picture ASAP. We are doing the same curriculum and I love it much more this year. It is perfect for Eila’s age and stage now and it is ideal for one-on-one teaching/learning. We just have school on the floor, though…
