Peek inside our home school...

Our Home School Classroom 

Our schoolroom does resemble a "classroom."  Why, you ask?  When our youngest began home schooling during his first grade year after being in a Christian school, he wanted a desk and a chalkboard.  Later that same year, our older two came home from the same school 3 months into their third (3rd) grade year.  Take a look at what we have now!

I am currently home schooling 4 teens - 2 Juniors, 1 Sophomore, and 1 Freshman!

We have not one, but TWO chalkboards!  And yes, we do have schedules to keep my life sane!

I love books... these are some of the books we use!

This is Matt (16) at the student's computer desk. 
This bookshelf was added during the winter of 2009-10.
Notice our fancy wall art!

My filing system.  Each student has a section of the vertical file on the left.
The file on the right is all mine for transcripts, high school portfolio information,
filing, articles, field trip ideas, etc.

Meet Rod, my husband and our school principal!  He is working at
our combined home office / teacher desk.

Last but not least, my laptop!  This is primarily mine, but the students use it when their
computer is already in use or when we are schooling away from home.

Well, there you have it!  We are currently into our second week of the new school year.  Things are moving more smoothly this week than last.  Praise the Lord!


  1. Love it! Hope your week continues to go smoothly, and the rest of the year as well!
