We just moved into a new home and are getting settled. After our time overseas we are thoroughly enjoying amenities we previously took for granted, such as ceiling fans, a sizable fridge/freezer, and carpeting. We are also trying to make the most of starting over in a new house, including giving considerable thought to where we want to put things, what we really need to keep, and going a bit greener.
Throughout this process, I've been thinking a lot about what kind of space we create when we make a home. Not just functionality or how it serves our own family members, but what it says aboutus.
As a new-ish home educator, I'm always curious about the day-to-day workings of other homeschooling families. Everything from methods to curriculum (or lack thereof) to working with different ages . . . even the mundane aspects fascinate me. So today I thought I'd share how we organize our homeschooling binder.

Just FYI, we made it to Florida and are currently eyeball deep in unpacking and organizing. I'm sure I'll be doing some writing about our travels and settling in soon. For now, however, we're getting ready to hit the road once again, this time to visit family, most of whom we haven't seen since March 2010. Not long after that we're taking off for Disney (again!). So, I'll probably just be writing and posting (here and on Facebook) sporadically for the next few weeks. I sincerely hope you will join me again once I am able to post regularly, probably by early July.
