One Room Schoolhouses

Here are some really cool pictures of one room schoolhouses.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do.
They represent the childhood experience of simpler times.

Many thanks to the wonderful artists that captured these on film.

I was fortunate enough to visit Paris some years back and remember it fondly.

I often wonder if I will ever return.
To be sure, I would love the opportunity.
But, the last visit was so perfect, I sometimes fear spoiling the memory of such a beautiful place.

Then I see pictures like those below and I realize that the risk is probably worth the reward...I'd be a fool to not go back should the chance present itself.

Here's a whole gallery of Paris pictures if you like the images below.
