Last week sometime, my Google reader returned a posting on the CyberBrethren blog entitled, “Bach and the Organ: Why the King of Instruments is Still King.” At the time, I thought it would be an interesting read for Katherine the Great, my budding organist. Well, yesterday, I finally checked the posting for myself and this is what I found: a wonderful video of the inner workings of an organ and more. Watch it. Homeschoolers, get your kids to watch it. I was inspired by it. May you be inspired as well.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
