Let K4 begin!!

Okay.. well not quite yet.  But we are making progress.. I don't have any before pics (oops) but our office has been transformed into the new schoolroom.  And in case you were wondering, yes, we are homeschooling.  ;-) (descriptions under the photo)

When you first walk into the room you see this (above).  The walls are freshly painted (yellow) although, the baseboards still need to be painted white.  There is also (on its way) a 36" round kindergarten table that will go in the center of the room for all things craft and work related.  ;-)

This wall shows some of our charts (L,R) Books of the Bible, The Ten Commandments chart (for kids), The brother offended checklist and the Go to the ant chart.   As well as some artwork done by Jorge.  Also, the cute curtain I bought to cover the closet door.  

This wall is more true to the color of the walls, a deeper yellow (which I love, btw.  thanks best hubby for painting).  The alphabet chart and the pledge of allegiance chart and our lovely window AC unit since the air doesn't push very well into this room.  And art work done by Alex.  

On the right is my "temporary" shelves until I can upgrade.  but we will keep the cute basket unit on the left, that now houses puzzles, paper, manipulative's., etc.  Also two of my favorite masterpieces: the first time my boys used finger paints (at home) hanging up on the wall.  

This is to show my beautiful bookshelf (I had two but had to get rid of one and store books to make this transition) that my husband built when we were first married.  Obviously, I need to do some organizing since the "transition."  

Overall, I love it.  There are still some details that have to be worked out.  Mainly getting the table will make all the difference.  The boys love it and as soon as they go in there they want to do all the "cool school stuff."  I have to admit, this is really fun.  I know it will get tougher as the kids get older, but I am so excited to be able to be their teacher!  I am thankful to God that He has given me the vision and a wonderfully supportive husband!  You rock babe!

I already told you this, but it looks AWESOME! Seriously, I'm way impressed! We did some "learning time" today...hopefully we can get more into it. Maybe if Fritz sees this schoolroom, he'll be more enthusiastic, since he always want to do what Alex and Jorge do!
