Our Learning Room...
As I mentioned earlier this week in my Commitment to Loveliness, one of the things that we wanted to accomplish this week was to streamline the children's play and learning area downstairs. What ended up happening is that we transformed the loft upstairs into the new learning area. It really only took us two hours in the morning to move the toys and learning things from the sunroom up to the loft. I would like to put up an icon corner, hang a few pictures, and perhaps get another lamp or two. I am very happy with how everything looks and I think that we will get a lot of use out of previously wasted space. I wish that there was some natural light up here, but as my grandfather says, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."
Of course, moving everything upstairs has created a rather barren space in the sunroom. We are hoping that it will eventually become a little reading nook for our family. Fortunately, garage sale season is nearly upon us... maybe I'll be able to find some treasures to make a cozy little room for reading before the weather gets cold again!
