Our Learning Spaces
This past week was school room week at the "Not" Back-to-School Blog Hop hosted by iHomeschool Network. So far, over 350 families have shared photos of their learning spaces, and it is so fun to see all of the great photos.
We have many learning spaces in our home where we read, study, work on projects, and enjoy life together. As we enter into our 14th year of homeschooling, education is a lifestyle and culture of our home and family, and this is reflected in our living spaces where we share our daily lives.
We do not have a formal schoolroom in our home, as through the day we spread through the house depending on the subject or project of study at hand. Once weekly, we attend classes at Classical Conversations Anderson, where we join with a community of classical learners. We also participate in extra-curricula activities, church classes and events, and take field trips.
Just recently, we downsized to our house one-half the size of our previous home. We spent the month of July moving and we are working on getting settled in to our new home.
|Family / Dining / Study|
Our favorite room in the home is the family/dining/study room that is next to the kitchen. It is a bright room with large windows and french doors. We love to study and read in this room. It has built-in bookcases and a fireplace which we are eager to enjoy in the cooler months.

We love the natural lighting of this room. It is a peaceful place to eat and study.

Briyah loves to read and she carries books with her wherever she goes. I snapped these two photos of her this week which is a typical posture for her on a daily basis. The picture on the left was taken when we were visiting the library. She could not wait to dive into her books so she started a new book as I filled up our crate. The picture on the right was taken at the Goodwill. Briyah is small enough that she just cozies up on a shelf while I am picking out good books to bring home for our collection.
Thank you for visiting my brief snapshot of our learning spaces. You can check out many more homeschooling spaces and schoolrooms on the "Not" Back-to-School Blog Hop.
