As you can see the sun porch has lots of windows and light. During the winter we can sit and watch the snow pile up while we're working, in the spring and summer we watch the squirrels and hummingbirds feeding on the flowers just outside the windows.
At the far end of the sun porch is this armoire. It used to house a small tv and a pile of VHS movies. I relocated those items to the basement, and now the armoire neatly houses (ok, HIDES) all of our school work clutter.
On occasion, when we have unexpected schedule changes, we'll push the books to one end of the table while we have dinner, then just slide them back into place to finish up.
I've found that the bright sunlight during the day has been a big help to attitudes, especially mine. During the winter, we have a cozy fire in our little woodstove, as we sit by the windows and watch the days shorten and the darkness creeps in earlier.
I hope you've enjoyed this peek into our school and home. Linking up with the 8th Annual Back to Homeschool Blog Hop.
