Hello Everyone! It's been a while I know. I have been trying to weed through my options of homeschooling Circulium. Let me say, it is very tiring on one's mind!
My husband and I went to our Statewide Homeschooling Convention A few weeks ago. It was LOTS of fun! I was in heaven. With *that* many books, and educational products under one roof, it was hard to just only browse.
In fact, we did get sucked into something. Take a Look:
Yup. That's right! We bought Violins for the girls! This is what you get when you take a music fanatic trombone playing husband, and a piano playing wife to a homeschooling convention with a really good sales lady who is *VERY* proud of her product.
We actually bought a Violin curriculum. The WHOLE thing, about five years worth, plus the Violins. It wasn't a bad price at all considering how much we got. Usually only *one* violin would cost as much as we payed for two violins and the curriculum.
The Lady who wrote it is an accomplished concert violinist, who has played in the New York Opera, as well as performed with Pavarotti, and loves to teach the Violin.
So far we have learned how to take the Violin in and out of it's case properly and carefully. We Have Learned a few parts of the Violin; as well as the parts of the bow.
I feel confident knowing that my husband is very smart, and loves music; he will be a BIG help to me as I teach the girls the violin. :)
Which, by the way, Sweetie has expressed she has wanted to play since she was three years old. Little Tiny Boy, looked *very* interested in it also, but still is a little to small to handle it without smashing it to smithereens, lol!
And here is a little Video Production that the Lady who designed the curriculum put together with her husband. It is Hilarious!
