Our School Room

Well, I am done with getting the bookshelves in order. Almost anyway, hehehe, I can still do more. I have 7 bookcases along one wall. I have one more to bring in from one of the rooms. I want to get most of the books into this room. They can keep some books in their rooms but I want the majority in the school room. Sometimes it's hard to know where a book is or if we even have it if there is a bookcase in one room and a few in the other. So I am trying to get them all in one place.

This first set is reference books for school. I have a shelf for math one for language arts, one and a half for science, one and a half for history and then there are shelves for nature and guides and art.

Then there is an area for the books that we are using now for our curriculum. Also some binders for nature studies and art and music biographies.

If you look on the first picture you can see something on the floor. Can you guess what it is? Yes, it's a fossil. But, do you know what kind it is? I've seen some at museums so I think perhaps some of you might figure this out. These came out of Fort Worth area. My brother gave these to us. The biggest is so heavy that I have a hard time picking it up. It has got to weigh at least 50 or 60 pounds. I vacuum around that thing and pull out the attachments to clean on it and around it. Way to heavy to go picking it up to vacuum under it.

So take your guess. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think it is. Come on, don't be chickens. Take a guess!
