Our Learning Spaces

In March, this is what our school space looked like. Our water proofing system failed. We had to move all our bookshelves and pull back the carpet and padding. It was a mess and stayed a mess until everything was finally repaired at the end of July. It took our water proofing company that long to come and fix the faulty system, replace drywall, and carpet. But everything is back in order now and it is so nice to have this space back. Our family uses it as a storage space for all our school supplies and resources, to play games and watch movies.

This is what the space looks like today. We don't do a lot of school down here in the basement, but it is wonderful to have this space to store everything.

Here's a few pictures of how we use all the space in our home for learning. You can find the children learning in bedrooms and bathrooms.

Learning also takes place outside in our yard, in our kitchen, dining room, and living room. Learning occurs in pretty much every room in our house.

I'm linking this post up over at the Heart of the Matter's Not Back to School Blog Hop. This is school room week. Check it out! It's fun to see all the different ways families organize and use the spaces the Lord has provided for them to learn in together!

I agree-- even though learning happens all over the home it's still nice to have that central location. I know you're glad to have all that water damage behind you, now everything looks wonderful!

Love that you use the whole house (and yard)! Glad the basement is dry again :)
