At the beginning of the school week, we have a clean work surface (a.k.a. the dining room table). By Wednesday of this week, we find ourselves in the midst of a learning tornado. Books, workbooks, dry-erase boards, pencils, markers, rubber stamps, educational games are EVERYWHERE. It is one of those days I'm tempted to call school off on account of messiness! However, they are having a wonderful time learning today. There is an air of discovery and creativity that is not always present during our lessons. Clean up time will have to wait, and in the meantime I'll focus on taking some deep, cleansing breaths.
P.S. The living room is MUCH worse. : ) We're going for a new record-- how many books can fit on the coffee table before it collapses under the weight of a large Amazon order and a trip to the library yesterday.
