Begin with the End in Mind

Or I may not have begun...



So, Monday I was finally able to get into Room 122 and "get things ready." Here are the before photos taken from corners of the room:













Scroll down..............



























And the after:






This is the view as you walk in the door. Check out the curtains I made- don't get too close. I wouldn't submit them to be judged at a 4-H show or the fair, but they work! Students will be grouped in 4 teams. There will be 22 students in the room and I cannot wait to meet them.















Taken from the library- to the right is the door. Don't worry- the bulletin boards will have things on them soon. There are two reading areas in the room. James and I made tables and chairs from wooden spools donated by electrical companies. We had fun- he's quite the painter. The last picture is of the fiction section of our library. I am a word nerd. I cannot get enough. I love books and love collecting them.


Thanks for stopping by! A little over 1 week of vacation left! Ahhhh!
