The Live & Learn Studio

Come on in! I’m not sure what to say that I haven’t shared before, so feel free to ask questions in the comments. This space is in our detached shop. Russ’s office space is in the nook to the left of the entry.

Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow. ~ Einstein

If that isn’t the perfect quote for the living and learning room at Mt. Hope, I don’t know what is.

The desk dividers are bookshelves. I’ve added tension rods on the back of each for hanging posters and clipboards. The big bin under Luke’s desk is filled with wooden track and trains for Lola.

This room really is the all-purpose room. Russ works in here. We do lessons in here. The boys play on their computers in here. The boys play games (Monopoly is a favorite) or watch movies with Dad or play Wii. Russ takes the kids down here to hang out when I need some space or quiet time.

And, yes, the Dr. Pepper cooler works.

I just love this entire, inspired space from the checked floor to the pops of orange to the quote on the wall!

I think that when we finally move (closing is today, staying here until May 31, don't know where we'll be after that yet), I am finally going to have a homeschool room and I am basically just going to copy this one. Or have you fly down here and re-create it at my house! ;-) Hope you can fit a vintage soda cooler in the overhead compartment on the plane,

Can you come and help me design our learning space? I'm dead on, full out serious.

I'll buy Dr. Pepper and any yummies you ask for.

Can you tell me where you got the poster with the quote? I really like that! Beautiful room, looks like it has alot of natural light! I would love having a room dedicated to homeschooling!

Hannah~ I so wish I could fly down there. Maybe not with the cooler, but...

Faith~ Of course! Seriously, I'll shoot you a message this week and we can get something on the calendar.

Laura~ You're going to laugh, but I just wrote the quote on a piece of cardboard. ;)
