Today's Heart of the Matter Online meme is for us to show our school room or area where we do our schoolwork. We do schoolwork pretty much anywhere in the house that we happen to be. The kids are quite interested in cooking, so we do lots of stuff in the kitchen. Wild Man has been enjoying making bread recently while Ga'hoole Girl likes cooking meals and making candy.
My absolute favorite part of the schoolroom, though, is these pull-out shelves. They are original to the house, which is about 60 years old, and are part of the reason I wanted to live in this house. We keep board games on the top couple of shelves with art supplies and science supplies in the bottom couple of shelves.
We didn't have any room in the school room for our world map, so it ended up in the dining room. For a while, I had it under a vinyl tablecloth on the table, but the tablecloth ripped and the map was getting messed up. We ended up putting it on the wall in the dining room. Since we have all kinds of discussions, including geography, at the dinner table, it's pretty convenient.
Wild Man asked what I was writing about today and I told him it was about where we do our schoolwork. He said, "We do it all over the place!" Indeed.
