Dining Room Reclaimed

All the homeschool materials for the preschoolers and the first graders had taken over our dining room, leaving us squashed and in chaos.  It didn’t feel very relaxing!  It was also hard to find what we needed when we needed it.  We worked for three weeks on it, and finally have this for their homeschool supplies – one cubby for each kiddo, plus my materials organized:


That keeps it organized but still accessible, and the colors make it easy for the kids to know where their school things go.

And we have our dining room cleaned up, rearranged, and reclaimed!


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  1. Wow, that looks really nice – pretty and so organized, and your mothers china cabinet safely displayed in a safe corner. Wish I could get my old brain to do that. Congratulations.:-)
