Bach, Beethoven, Pachelbel, Mozart

Our boys have been into classical music a lot. Since I was pretty tired today we decided to watch documentaries about composers and how to read music. I then started to wonder…..are there any close symphonies that have school shows….I bet there are. So, I looked up symphonies near us….none are “near” lol. Anyway, I found Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh and emailed them. Ok, get this, not only do they have shows for schools, but also cater to homeschool and families and here is the big surprise….they are free! So, if you aren’t far from Pittsburgh, check it out! Here is the link. We have already made our reservations! Let us know if you are going too! Would love to meet some of you!

Motivation Monday

Another Monday, another week to get moving and get things done. Gonna be honest….my get up and go, has not gotten up yet. Lol The boys are still asleep and I’m relaxing and reading other bloggers blogs. I am thankful I can do that on a Monday morning. I know most people have to get up early to get the kids ready for school or to get to work or both. When WH went to public virtual school he had to get up a lot earlier and he hated it. We homeschool for several reasons, but being able to take a day and take it slow and easy is such a huge perk. We are going to do some “school work” but today its just going to be a nice easy day. My husband also told me it is National Boston Cream day…so we are going to have to honor that. Lol So, for Motivation Monday, I’m going to tell you to motivate yourself to relax, and take in all the wonderful things in your life right now. Even if things are really crappy, find something positive that has happened, think on that and thank God for it. I hope your week is wonderful and I pray for you all to have some time to sit back and relax a while. Talk to you later! Mandy

So Excited!

Our KidArtLit box came today! We will be doing the live review on our Facebook page as soon as we get the giveawAy and coupons figured out! I am hoping to have it sometime next week! I will keep you all posted! I hope you are having a great day!

What’s Up Wednesday

Morning guys! I hope your week has been going well. Ours has been a little abnormal….good, just not our normal schedule. Monday we took off just to spend some time relaxing together and Ben hadn’t been feeling well so he needed the extra rest anyway. Yesterday the boys and I went on a Field trip to our local state park for a homeschool bird and wildlife demonstration. Did you know hummingbirds only live in North and South America, that there are over 320 different breeds and only sixteen of those breeds live in the US and only one breed lives in our home state of Ohio? I was blown away! Lol I thought I knew a lot about our local birds, but I was schooled. Lol WH and LH really enjoyed it. They loved seeing a wing from a hawk and different sized eggs and skulls. It was pretty neat. WYH didn’t really get into it, he just kept climbing up and down on the fence rail beside me. Lol After that we took a little drive to get a small treat and then headed home to finish up chores and play. LH had gymnastics yesterday evening. Ben and I took him and dropped him off then went on a mini date and got a couple of Auntie Ann’s pretzels…those are so yummy! Then we headed back to watch LH for the rest of his practice .

That’s about all we had going on so far this week. What have you all been up to? Anything new or exciting? How does your schedule usually go or are you a more spontaneous kind of family? Let me know! I love to hear about different styles of homeschools. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week! We are looking forward to another field trip tomorrow! Talk to you later! Mandy
