I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

While we were working on the Homeschool Room remodel, my neighbor came over to ask if we wanted an old desk. Of course we did!! It turns out that the school that my kids used to go to were going to throw it away and my neighbor just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Lucky for us!

Here in the top drawer I have pencils, colored pencils, scissors, erasers, more markers, tape, dry erase markers, history DVDs and some bags of different cards that were cut out of workbooks and used for lessons.

It used to sit on the rails of his top bunk before it had legs to give him space for his Legos and for a place to get away from the younger Nuts to play with is big kid toys. After the Nuts moved upstairs into their new bedrooms, Poppy Nut added the legs and the glass cover. This is Wing Nut’s desk space and shared computer space. When it it time for the other Nuts to use the computer, Wing Nut moves over to the other desk or to the coffee table.

The futon love seat in the back folds out into the guest bed and the Classroom gets turned into the guest room when family comes to visit.

I still need to get a bin for the board books at the bottom for when the babies are in the room. The next shelf up is for the last of our coloring books, printable coloring pages, crayons and Highlights, High-Five, National Geographic Kids and Boy’s Life magazines.

On top of all that are some Pre-K games that I get to play with Little Nut Nut along with some more paint supplies and more of my teacher supplies that need to be up, up and away. This photo also shows the top shelf of the closet, which is not done yet, but so far tossed up there are not currently used curriculums, play dough, music instruments, more games and more Leapster learning system.

So that is it, all of our Homeschool Room Makeover. If  you haven’t seen them yet, there are 3 posts before this one that show our Homeschool Room Makeover from the very beginning. What do you think?

    Organizing teaching supplies takes time and patience. I was at a friend’s house tonight and loved the way she used coffee table trays to separate her kids home school papers. I hope I can get motivated to start working on my organizational projects.

      Cara, we also have lap-desks with beanbag type padding on the bottom of them that they can use if they want to sit on the couch or go outside to do their lessons :) Now That I am organized, homeschool is so much easier and fun for us!

    Wow, what a great space to work in. Want to come over and organize my house when you get done. :) That desk is great. It is amazing what schools throw away.

      Thanks Kathi! I still can’t believe that they were just going to throw it away!

    I just found your blog tonight…and I’m so inspired! I don’t have kids yet, but my husband and I are already considering homeschooling. You obviously do a fantastic job with your young ones. Thank you for sharing your classroom with us!

      Thanks Monet! This is our first year diving into Homeschooling with all of the school aged kids…we are having so much fun!
