House Tour 2013: The Most Colourful Room In Our House
About a week before Sam started school Janice gave us a Grade 1 workbook which they hadn't used. And Sam was hooked. However, Grade 1 is just a little above his Junior Kindergarten level. So for Sam's first day of school we bought him a Kindergarten workbook. Well, Sam spends hours working in it. It has about 300 pages and he's probably done half of them. He LOVES it. So the little table you see in the picture above (also from Tim and Janice!) has his workbook on it along with his beginning chapter books. In the drawer are his pencil crayons and pencil sharpener. I sometimes feel like Sam is growing up as I blink.
I really feel like this room marks the transition of Sam from preschooler to school age kid and reflects that quite well. And I hadn't realized that until I wrote this post so now I'm feeling sad and happy all at the same time. This is one of those moments when I wish I could freeze time. Since I can't however, I will enjoy Sam and the stage of childhood this represents. Hopefully, by the time he turns thirteen and wants to paint the walls neon green or black to reflect himself at that point, I'll be ready for it!
