Our Cottage

This is a slide show I made for the Ellen show. I have entered a contest in hopes of winning a home improvement contest. Yes my home is in need of many repairs and we would love to add on. Our deepest desire is to build a new home on the back portion of our property. I have drawn dozens of plans over the years as our family ahs grown and needs have changed. I know that will happen in God's time not mine and continue to move forward in gratefulness with what I have.
  I wanted to share here to show you that YOU CAN homeschool in any amount of space. In this video you will catch a glimpse of how we convert rooms daily to meet needs. Our living room is a library, master suite and dining room. The boys have collapsible cots to make room for play space as our rooms are about 10 x 12 at greatest. The second bedroom is a large closet/schoolroom. I do love the one closet idea, makes putting clothes away easy. Our home is cozy, colorful and sometimes INSANE! At this very moment the boys have cots in the living room with us,....we have an evening visitor in the form of a raccoon. So for the third night I have closed off the back of the house and set out a trap. Butterscotch seems to lure him in. I had to glue it down with gorilla glue tonight. Just another fun day in the woods.
