We’ve been getting caught up on school this week. Between Christmas and sickness and me feeling lazy we’ve lost track a bit.
The first thing that needed to be done was to clean out the kids’ lockers. A couple of years ago I bought some old lockers at the flea market. They were school bus yellow, but a little (OK, a lot of) spray paint and they were transformed.
It is perfect. I have 6 kids in school right now and there are 6 lockers. They keep their personal school books and papers in their individual lockers. I keep the community supplies on a shelf in the school room/dining room. A flawless system.
I adore these lockers. They are happy.
Don’t you just love when something fills every need? Organization, character, durability, affordability.
By the way, I am planning to raise the curtains in this room so they hang at the ceiling. But I have to figure out what fabric to add to the bottom so they won’t look like I’m waiting for a flood.
Where were we? Oh yeah…..getting going with school again. See how I get off track? Hey! What’s that over there?!
But we’re getting it done. We’ve caught up on everyone’s math lessons and gotten the weekly assignments started. It’s all good.
Except those curtains which are now bugging me more than they already were since they look so squatty in these pictures.
And that half dead hanging basket in the window which is actually hanging outside on the porch. I hadn’t realized that it was so anemic. Add that to the list…..take down the sick looking ferns.
I hope you’re having as productive a week as I am. (is that grammatically correct?)
