The New School Room

I'm sure you all know this, but we're temporarily in a Rental here in Ohio. It's a pretty small house, but TONS bigger than the Scout Cabin, so I can't complain. Anyway, it has a living room, and a smaller room off of the living room (maybe like a sitting room) that opens up to the kitchen, the stairs, and a small bedroom. Not much space, and a main thorough way in the house. That's where the school room was set up. Let me tell you, it was sure crowded. 1 table set up as a desk with stuff stacked way up high. 2 other smaller desks for 2 other kids. A microwave cart as a printer holder. 2 bookshelves side by side for supplies. And, we still had to walk through it, as it was our main "hallway".

So, one Saturday when Brent was busy working, I decided to rearrange the house. For anyone who knows me, I do this quite often. Funny, because it's so not in my personality type to like change. But hey, we all have our quirks. Anyway, I decided to move Jacob and Thomas upstairs with the other kids, and turn their room into a school room. The best part of it is, I can put up a baby gate, and keep Jimmy and Joe (mostly Jimmy) out! We moved a small love seat and bookshelf into the old school area, and have a nice sitting area.

It really works quite well this way. Now I just have to figure out a way to get all 5 kids to go to sleep in the same room at night....

That looks like a great set up!
I know what you mean about getting kids to sleep in one room, although it is just Jackson and Hannah, it still can be hard.
