It has been a sad, tragic, lonely, boring summer, and I've never been happier to see the end of a season in sight. I'm anxious to begin a new school year, but because we have several things going on next week, I have declared First Day of School to be August 20.
As I anticipate that day, I have had fun planning and setting up the schoolroom. Let me show it to you.
My schoolroom is in the basement. The room also doubles as a guest room. See the bed to the left?
What's nice is that it is a daybed, so throw a few cushions on it, and it's the perfect reading spot. Other important features: my huge whiteboard which I love, the table, the bookcase (always a favorite thing in any room), and oh yes - that blasted treadmill which mocks me everytime I go down there (but I usually just ignore it).
That bookcase there that I love? That's just a small number of my books. I won't tell you how the movers complained about the number of boxes of books they had to drag down to the basement. Here are the rest:
And there is also the game closet, though it is not quite as jam-packed as the bookcases are:
It's been fun organizing.
I bet I'm the only person in the world who is excitedly counting down the days 'til school starts.
