Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real: A Nicely paced week

I love the light that flows through the schoolroom as the day goes from dawn to dusk.  This is the lamp lit room after dinner when all books are put away for the night.  It always makes me feel .... well, snug is the closest word for the feeling.  

Watermelon. Plain and simple!

Dancing Child has this great and overwhelming attraction to the "free" table at all conferences, co ops, sales etc.  This particular haul came from Orientation night at our local home school co op.  I found it quite funny when I took in all the loot he had gathered.  Last of all........Clutter Control.......ah, the definition of irony!

We call it the roaming top hat.  You know, that last bit of "stuff" left over when a party or a play is over.  The thing that just wasn't there on the table, for some reason,  when you put everything back in the tubs in the basement.  Well, this time it was the top hat and it has been making the rounds of the house in odd and amusing places. 


  1. Hahaha! Your children and the top hat! Priceless!

  2. "Clutter Control" - yes, SO ironic! (I need to get that book for my husband! ;)
    Your school room does look so cozy and snug. Putting the books away at the end of a school day IS a very comforting feeling!

  3. I wonder what your top hat will say if it can talk :-). You have a lovely schoolroom. Thank you for sharing photos. Leaves this homeschooling mom inspired.
