We Are Works In Progress (Our Creativity Center/Main Homeschool Room)



Welcome to our Homeschool Room for the 8th grade. This room serves as a general Creativity Center. Home Office. Scrapbook Room. Blogging Station. You name it and it probably happens here. All kinds of good stuff happens in this room. FYI, it never stays this neat. I mean really, creativity is a messy process. But, I am aiming to organize our paperwork from child to adult this year so here's hoping! We are also preparing to paint this room this month and am looking forward to seeing the color transformation. I will post a follow up when it is finished. Here are a few pics of where we are starting. We spend a lot of time reading together on the Living Room Couch as well. We are not rigid, but it is nice to have a place for everything and everything in a place. Trust me, it is the returning everything to the one place we are working on! Meanwhile consider these to be "Before" Pictures. We are works in progress, as is our Homeschooling Journey! Well, we start school this coming week (September 2-6) and look forward to seeing God's good and perfect will unfold as we walk by faith in Him. One day at a time. 




This is the left side of the closet where most of the formal curriculum is stored (at this time- see us in a month or two). 



I can be a little obsessive with pens, and pencils.
Actually all writing utensils.
At least my Hubby and Daughter say so. Hmf. 


Still organizing and decluttering the craft supplies.  




Teacher's Desk, Blog Writing Spot and of course Student Computer Lab.
Although my Girl does have her own laptop and we do love the Library. 


This World Map is actually going on the wall once we have painted. 
But glad we have room on the desk as well.


Here are a few of the Post Paint Wall Accessories.  


Happy September and Happy New School Year!

  2. It all looks so organized and expectant! I've always loved Sept. for that reason...all the new supplies and being involved in my kids school. Yay for you and your homeschool adventure. I know without a doubt that you have what it takes to do this Dawn!
    Happy September to you!!

  3. So neat and organized! I love starting out with something that way....it never lasts long, though. Seeing how well you have things laid out really makes me wish I could go back and do things over. If I had had a clue how things would go, I would have homeschooled my daughter even though I still believe she'd have fought me on everything. She would have still learned more than she did in our public school.

  5. Hi Dawn! Don't you just love the start of school? Everything in it's place, and you are ready to go! I love that :)

    I'll be looking forward to seeing what color you pick for your new school room. Any ideas yet? And I think reading on the couch is so lovely, comfy and comforting. All schools should have that.

    Happy Weekend!

walk along the shore with me and leave your footprints in the sand-
I'm listening, friend...in November I will not be replying so often, but instead slip quietly over to your place for a visit. ;)
