Seems we are constantly picking up books around this house. They are everywhere. The kitchen table, the couches, the floor in the lounge, the kids’ beds, their floor, etc. At any given time we have about eighty books checked out from the library. Yes, eighty. Eight-oh.
See all those books in the background? Ugh. Definitely need to get to sorting those out. We moved the bookshelf but didn’t get them piled back on nicely. This is in our kitchen. We are renting this house and our “schoolroom” has become more of a “storage-of-school-things room” while we do school at the kitchen table or sitting on the couches in the lounge. Thus the bookshelf which holds school-y things on the top shelf.
I hope to move some of the books to hold trays of things to keep Ladybug busy while we are schooling. In the meantime, this is what lunch often looks like in our family. I’ve thought about having a no-books-at-the-table policy but really I don’t mind it at lunch as long as we aren’t getting food all over our books.
