pictures from my bookshelf

My favorite children's book ever: The Riverside Anthology of Children's Literature

up up up up up!!!  I love it.  I can't even reach the top shelf without a chair!  The shelves stop 6 inches away from the ceiling!

my favorite part of my bookshelf - the coloring books!   I want to eventually own almost all of Dover's coloring books, LOL.  I have a decent selection so far.....these aren't for the kids to color in; I use them to make copies.   And no one yell at me I have 5 kids, I'm not going to buy 5 copies of each coloring book when we only use a couple pages out of each one

Trying to be more disciplined

I really am trying to post regularly on this thing and be disciplined about recording what we're doing....2 steps forward, 1 step back, I guess.    We've taken a few weeks off because of a wonderful distraction.  I always feel bad when we get way off schedule but I suppose with so many littles, and then life on top of it, I suppose it's ok to cut myself a little slack, but it's hard.  Anyway. 



We have since added some trim and other decorations to the doors; we still have a little more finishing work to do and then when it's done done done, I'll post another picture.  I'm so proud of my dh!    He designed it and built it and it looks great!   I combined 3 bookshelves into this one, and also moved the terribly crowded game closet into the cabinet......and now I have a place for all my school books and a desk where I can do my lesson planning and other things.  I love it!
