Here's our super dobbler kitty keeping watch for us. Notice all the books! Yes! We finally have bookshelves in our living room! RL has asked that I find all the books in the house and put them on these shelves so we can free up all the other places we have books stashed. I just couldn't break it to him that these four bookshelves were probably NOT going to be enough to store all the books this family has! R is our resident librarian and has categorized the shelves by reference, home school, knitting, other crafts, fun reads, classics and we even gave L a shelf of his very own for his role playing books. Of course that shelf is the most accessible shelf. It's right behind the center of the couch where he does most of his sitting and planning for his next game. A shelf or two holds cds for the computer and of course we have a shelf holding yarn. We need at least one more of those. Right now I am sitting at my new computer desk, which R put together for me, and I have no fear, whatsoever, that the slide out shelf for the keyboard is going to come crashing to the floor when I least expect it. I will have to take some pictures soon so you can see where we take turns using the computer. I also want to take some more pictures of the whole living room because I'm so proud of it all! We did it as a family and nobody ended up in the hospital. Notice I didn't say hurt or bleeding because that did happen. However, I will not whine, Kelly, I will just let it go.
If you get a chance, go check out a cool blog that R found. It's done by a home schooling girl - Yippee for you, you home schooler you - and it's very interesting. She even has her own Etsy site - very cool! Here's the link - check it out - Bella Modiste.
