Maestro Classics (Review)

In searching for some fun summer activities that will continue to reinforce the fine arts, I came across Maestro Classics.  I LOVE this program!  What a fantastic opportunity for families who want to enrich their child's experiences with classical music, and build a love for the symphony.

Bless a Homeschooler Giveaway - Dear Classical Mom


Mother's Day is right around the corner and I've gotten together with a group of bloggers to bring you a giveaway and blog hop that we are hoping will bless your socks off!

We not only hope to bless several moms with some pretty awesome giveaway prizes, but we also hope to bless many more moms through the Letters to Moms Blog Hop (that you can find at the end of this post), where each participating blogger is writing a 'Dear Mom' letter.  These letters will be anything from a letter to our own moms, a letter to ourselves, a letter to a mother figure, or a generalized letter to a group of moms, such as weary moms, hopeless moms, expecting moms, single moms....... Maybe one of these letters will speak to you!

So please, hop around to the many other bloggers below, and of course enter to win the giveaway too - there will be 4 winners with the total prize value over $1000!

What is a Local History Club?

One of the things we did this year that we really enjoyed was to join a local history club.  I owe a special thank you to a local Mom who was motivated and initiated this among our group of friends.  Living in the South and studying a lot of civil war history for this year's CC curriculum, it was a perfect fit.  We had many field trip opportunities that blended both our local North Carolina history with our CC studies of the Civil War period.  I was very thankful that we did it and it gave us an additional chance to see friends and share in another educational experience together each month.

Last Wonderful Wednesday! Easter Celebration!

Hard to believe we are done!  Wonderful Wednesday has seen it's final week!  The last week landed on April fools day, and right before Easter.  I couldn't help but have some messy, erupting fun to bring it all to a close!  I even played an April fool's day joke on all the kids!  I've included instructions and ingredients for all this week's Wonderful Wednesday's fun - great for anytime of the year -not just Easter!

Blessing Friends for Easter!

Each year we try to come up with something to do that is special for Easter.  We did a hands on devotion last year, and a meaningful project the year before, so it was a year to bless someone.   This year we decided to "egg" friends with blessings for Easter.  So here's what we did, and there's still time for you to do it too!

Preamble Fun with Lichtenstein!

Today we were commemorating our timeline memory work with our dress up of New York's own Lady Liberty.  We also celebrated our history sentence for the week, by doing a Lichtenstein art project, that reflected our patriotism!
