I can’t believe it’s November 6th. Probably the only reason I know the date is because Sweetpea’s birthday is tomorrow. I realized today I’m overdue for my Write This Way post for November. (I’ll get that up later this week.)
There has been much activity at our house. We started ESL classes for the neighbor kids a couple of weeks ago, and that’s taken quite a bit of time for me to organize and prepare.
And Thursday last week was a really big day because our furniture finally arrived!
Here are some pictures of my favorite rooms, although every room makes us sigh with pleasure upon walking into it. After seven months sleeping on the floor and crouched around Rubbermaid-type bins pushed together in lieu of a table, we will never again take furniture for granted!
Here is the final edit of the homeschool room (except for the fact that our If/Then Chart has disappeared from the cupboard door behind Pumpkin–anyone seen it?) This space was lovely to work in even with our tiny little table. Now it’s truly our dream homeschool space. Everything is so convenient, we have storage for all our things. Wonderful!
A table! AND chairs! Wow. This is the marvel everyone seems to be appreciating the most. The kids keep remarking about being able to tuck their legs under something and how easy it is not to spill and make a big mess. My biggest thrill is the round table. I grew up eating at a round table. It’s so cozy and conducive to conversation!
Yep. They’re as comfy as they look. Already caught myself snoozing on the sofa.
As wonderful as the rest of the house is, this is perhaps my favorite little corner. It’s where I’ve been hammering out a lot of the words for NaNoWriMo (current count 7041–down a little on my daily count today since I was baking for Sweetpea’s aformentioned birthday).
It’s right next to the homeschool room, so super convenient and my desk matches JavaMan’s–a his and hers set.
A special word of thanks to Home Essentials of Hong Kong for making it all come together.
What a blessing! We are overwhelmed–again!
