Welcome to Donwell: Juxtaposition

If I were to ask you where a homeschooling mother of five children spends most of her time during the day, what would you say?

Three rooms — kitchen, schoolroom, and laundry — are where I spend most of my waking hours.

So here’s the great thing about this place:  the laundry room here is RIGHT NEXT TO the schoolroom.  It actually comes off of the schoolroom.  So I can fold and keep an eye on people doing their math.  I can switch loads in between reading and science.  It’s really quite amazing.

Of course, now that it’s summer, I avoid both of these rooms like the plague.  It’s vacation, after all.
