Our breakfast room is the hub of our household. We meet around the table for homework, family meetings, board games, science projects, bagels on Sunday mornings and hot chocolate before school. My husband listens to NPR and drinks coffee in the morning and we eat In-N-Out on Saturday nights.
The floor beneath the table is always littered with crumbs, scraps of paper, Legos, pieces of clay, smashed grapes, pencils, bits of pipe cleaner, etc.
Sometimes it drives me crazy and sometimes I feel grateful simply that we own a home where such a mess can be made.
I love the life that happens around our table, so I’ve decided to start a project where I document it. In the weeks to come, you’ll see a lot of this table.
