Our schoolroom

All it's missing is students! I am so excited about this school year. Today, we went to the library to get the "supplemental books" for the first two weeks. (Note to self: Do this next time WITHOUT the kids.) Between the three of them, the major themes for the first week are: Vikings, Leif Ericsson, Christopher Columbus, jungles, cows, things that live on the ground (including, but not limited to: moles, snakes, ants, snails, beetles). Our library is pretty small, but we managed to find stuff we can use. I FINALLY finished setting up the school room, complete with nerdy labels on EVERYTHING. (I slapped a sticker on Abbie when she sat still for a few seconds.) Just wanted to share my nerdiness. Also, this video: White and Nerdy.

I big puffy heart my label maker. That is all.

The former dining room, now the school room.


This has the kids' chore banks, plus the chore-store list and their Bible-verse writing.

Our "chore store" list.

Going to the pool would be MUCH more expensive in our store...
