Organizing/Decluttering

I am a keeper!  The room in my home that we so lovingly call the “office” has become a wreck.  We put a lot of work into it pre-kids but after kids it has turned into “just stuff it in the office” room. 

Our last homeschool year (pre-k) we did around the dining room table.  It was a nice big surface to cut and paste and to color.  But it also meant that it was not that suitable for when it came time to actually eat off the table come dinner time.  So I made the decision to move to the office.  It has a nice big desk that we worked on and created years ago.  The problem is that it is a wreck.  So we are now working towards making it useable for homeschool. 
I am excited about the move.  I am not excited about all the work that has to take place in order to make it work.  Especially on these weeks where my youngest is fighting naps when he so desperately needs them.  I know that the outcome will be so worth it.  I will even share a picture or two on how it turns out. 
So where do you land in your homeschool days.  Do you do it around the table like I did?  Do you have a special room?  Do you have all your supplies in some sort of closet and do homeschool anywhere in the house that suits your fancy? 
The one thing I like about the freedom of homeschool is that there is no right way to do it.  We all do things differently based on how it works best for our family.  I like that there are no right and wrong ways to homeschool as long as your child is learning and you are headed towards a goal.
