This year, I started the adventure of homeschooling my son in kindergarten, and we use a corner of his room to do it in because he has a larger room, and it kept all our stuff off the kitchen table. As with anything, our corner evolved some throughout the year as we figured out what worked for us and how to keep focused on school while surrounded by all his toys. (We started the year with a line of blue masking tape on the floor to divide the room into school side/play side, but that didn’t last long with little sister around!)
Anyways, we did school at an old fold up card table all year, until TODAY! Over the weekend, I found this beautiful table ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD FOR FREE! I swung my mini van over, and snatched it up with a smile on my face and thanksgiving in my heart! It was covered in cobwebs and scratched up, but is solid wood, and perfect for the space!
As with many things, the new table inspired me to make some more changes in the corner (besides sweeping, which was long overdue), and I moved the bookcase from across the room to the school corner, banishing the LEGO table to the far side of the room and HOPEFULLY eliminating the painful reoccurrence of me stepping on tiny sharpened plastic each time we did school! Whew!
We only have about a week of school left in kindergarten, and me, my son, and the corner all look different because of it 😉
