After moving into their new house earlier this year, Gina Kirschenheiter and her boyfriend, Travis Mullen, have had to do a bit of unexpected redecorating as some of their combined six kids start the new school year at home.
In an Instagram Story video on August 18, The Real Housewives of Orange County mom shared a peek at the virtual learning setup the couple designed for three of the kids. While one desk is placed behind a couch, two others facing the opposite direction are just steps away. Ensuring the kids are stocked with supplies, an organizer holding books, pencils, highlighters, and more also serves as a divider between those two desks.
The individual spaces are a drastic change from their setup in the spring, when at least three of the kids worked side-by-side at a long white table. At the time, Gina shared a hilarious look at their new normal.
“Sienna’s face sums it all," Gina captioned a photo of her daughter looking exasperated while doing school work. She also added the hashtags "home school," "coronavirus," and "lockdown."
With the individual workspaces all set up, Gina is looking on the bright side as they adjust to a new school year at home. "2 out of 3 up and running!" she captioned a video of two of the children working while Travis helped another on his computer. "Not too shabby."
Gina, who is also mom of sons Luca and Nicholas, opened up about moving into the new house with Travis and his three children from a previous relationship.
"It’s only three bedrooms but we have triple bunkbeds in both the kids’ rooms, so everyone has settled into their own corner," she told PEOPLE in February. "They’re just so happy together, all six of the kids, that it makes us feel so confident in this decision, and reminds us that we’re doing the right thing."
