If I had a dollar for every time I rearranged our home I'd probably have over $50. Lol. We moved the open-ended play area out into our living room. I'll share why soon enough, but I do love that it is a part of our family space. We are quite privileged to have the space to do this. Sometimes I feel it is too much. It is hard to balance and important to keep things in perspective, a reminder I got from @mightymother_ on her live IG story today. Having a smaller space sure would force us to really evaluate and make more careful choices. I'm certainly very happy with what we offer our children but sometimes I get carried away. We are doing some sorting out to prepare for a garage sale and I'm noticing we have fewer "toys" than I previously thought. Most of the closet space was taken up by baskets and trays I have accumulated myself. 😬 It is high time we evaluate though and pare down some. This whole homeschooling business definitely changed things for us, as did my Montessori teacher training. I've been slowly accumulating items for my future classroom - it is quite addicting! Anyway, just thought I'd share this area with you all for now. Happy Friday!
