Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


School and Stuff

I've always wanted a school room to teach the children in.  For the past 12 years, I've schooled in the dining room, the kitchen, bedrooms, and family rooms.  Our house is not very big, so I do not have many options.  We do have this room in the front of the house that was labeled as the "sewing room" by the original builders.  This is the room where the laundry is, and it has the door to the pantry in it.  When Eva and Joy came into our lives, we put in a small table and chairs.  It was more of their "coloring station".

Last spring I got this wild idea to add some shelving and counter space to make it an official school room.  I have never painted that room since we moved in way back in 2001.  So, we cleaned out the room and painted, and now I have an "official" school room.  I love it and it makes teaching so much more pleasurable.

The waiting mess.

Before the paint job.

 The finished product.

Oh, yeah.  I can't forget about the great new additions!  We added a wonderful couple to the room...The Whirlpool Cabrio washer and dryer!  I'm in love!  Who knew laundry could be so easy and painless?

I could lose a child in this huge machine!

10 kind words:


I love your new school room!

Serving the King

Wow! I'll send you my address so you can come do the same to my home school area. Thanks so much! You're the best! This is so incredibly nice of you! :)

Learning Together at Home

I covet your machines!

What a beautiful and cheerful space to school in! You were obviously inspired to transform it like that. :)


You did a wonderful job, Cheri!
I love the blue walls.
I like your new machines too. You need them with all of your little ones! :)


Oh wow, you did a great job!


We built our house 3 yrs ago - the best part...getting a new washer & dryer!


Congrats on your new school room. And thanks for sharing the photos. It looks like a great space to teach and learn. And I love how you maximized space by placing their seatwork up against the wall. Great utilization. I will have to keep that in mind as our family grows but our space doesn't! LOL. Excellent, excellent. ;)

I am in the process of reworking our school room too, making room on one side for "tot school" for Madeline. She loves to "do school" like Caleb. I can't wait until it's finished. I bet you're just so excited and feel refreshed! Good for you!
