Our Learning Room...


As I mentioned earlier this week in my Commitment to Loveliness, one of the things that we wanted to accomplish this week was to streamline the children's play and learning area downstairs. What ended up happening is that we transformed the loft upstairs into the new learning area. It really only took us two hours in the morning to move the toys and learning things from the sunroom up to the loft. I would like to put up an icon corner, hang a few pictures, and perhaps get another lamp or two. I am very happy with how everything looks and I think that we will get a lot of use out of previously wasted space. I wish that there was some natural light up here, but as my grandfather says, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."

Of course, moving everything upstairs has created a rather barren space in the sunroom. We are hoping that it will eventually become a little reading nook for our family. Fortunately, garage sale season is nearly upon us... maybe I'll be able to find some treasures to make a cozy little room for reading before the weather gets cold again!

It is lovely! I have to admit I'm a bit jealous of the space! Our learning area/ school room/ art studio doubles as the dining room! On the plus side, it definitely keeps me organized!

What a beautiful learning space! We are doing school, right now, in our dining room, but my dear husband is finalizing plans to make a divider in our dear daughter's room to make it two rooms: a bedroom for her, and a school room for us. I'm looking forward to getting all of the alphabets and science stuff off our dining room walls. :-D

Looks great, what a fun space! I am having to get really creative in our new house with homeschooling supplies. It is great that you have the loft area!

Love it! I'm working on our playspace this week. Did you move all the toys too? I see most of them, but I was wondering about Little Man's trains, etc.

We did end up leaving some toys downstairs. I have some baskets with lids on shelves and they hold our Russian Blocks (for church building:) ), legos, and most of our Ostheimer figures. We also have some puzzles and games and a basket with trains and cars and one with train tracks. We allow the children to bring things down if they want to play downstairs, but at the end of the day we bring it back up.
