The Cruel War

I have mentioned before that my children use the Amblesideonline curriculum in combination with other resources. One of the items on the curriculum that we haven't always been good at following through on is folk music study. So I'm playing around with different ways of sharing folk music with my kids. Several people have shared with me that they find youtube invaluable for this. So I offer here a youtube video that I particularly like of this semester's selection, "The Cruel War" a song that dates from the American Civil War.

The Yummyfun Kooking Series

Cooking is one of my children's all time favorite activites. Mine too truth be told! I recently ran across this trailer for a cooking show for kids that I know they will love. I haven't got my hands on one yet, but I thought you all would enjoy hearing about it. I hope to give you a full blown review soon!
