Our Homeschool Room


It’s my new favorite room in the house, and it’s the one we have waited on the longest to be complete.  Do you remember about a year ago, we tore our roof off the house and went up with a higher pitch. raisin-the-roof-600x400

We framed in our new space.unfinishedI frustrated my husband with ridiculous inspiration pictures from Laduree in Paris.Laduree-NYC

And then he took awesome to a new level and made it happen for me.  The girls and I spend our days together here, and it’s about as good as it gets for all of us.homeschool room1

When I was a little girl, I would line up my Cabbage Patch Dolls and stuffed animals in my room and play school.  I was made to teach, and now I get to do it for real, with my own children.  God is good.  We were 6 months late completing the project, but it was totally worth the wait.  Hope you love it like we do.homeschool room1

    This room is stunning and everyone involved did a wonderful job!
    I did have a question, though, and I absolutely mean no disrespect by it.
    Why do Christians, compared to other religious and non-religious groups,
    home-school their children more? I was very curious about this –
    as I see this happening a lot where I live.
    Thank you!

  15. Visiting from Better After. WOW! Amazing transformation! God is good :-)

  16. I’m a retired schoolteacher, and I love your school room. I hope you are blessed with lots of learning, inquisitive children and the patience and grace to go with all that is education.
