Never Too Many Planners

I have been showing off my planners lately and some people have asked how/why I use these planners.  They even think I am organized.  Haha!  I fake organization. If I didn't use my planners nothing would get done, so at least I can fake it.

Using my Erin Condren Teacher Planner in my Home School: An Update

Back in July I shared with you my Erin Condren Teacher Planner and how I set it up for the year to use as a homeschool parent. Today I want to share with you how that is going and whether I am still using it and liking it.

Music and Art through the Ages: Part 4: Baroque

We are continuing on in our study of music and art. We started in Ancient Greece, traveled to Medieval Times, and then the Renaissance.

Today we are delving into the Baroque era, which is a European musical time period that spans roughly between 1600 and 1750 AD.  Notable composers include Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann, and Bach. Some interesting instruments used are the modern string instruments of today, the hurdy-gurdy (or wheel fiddle), the harpsichord, and recorder.
