Today was our first day of a new year of homeschooling, and filling six little brains with knowledge has a way of depleting the few brain cells I have left. The good news is we made it to the Atlanta History Center downtown and back home again without leaving any kids behind or getting hopelessly lost. The bad news is my sweeties have to start practicing piano again and none of them have an especially light touch with the keys. Now I know why summer was so blissfully peaceful and relaxing.
Ah, well. Summer’s over. It’s time to look forward to all this month has to offer, and home school is one of those things for me. Another August event I’ve been looking forward to is the new issue of Guardian Angel Kids. This free e-zine, designed for children ages 2-12 years old (as well as parents, teachers, and librarians), is published monthly online. The theme for August is “Fun with Music” and I’m thrilled they chose my children’s poem “Jenny’s Song” for publication in the latest issue.
If you have a moment, please read my poem about a girl who loves to sing, but can’t ever hit the right notes. And if you happen you have a child or two at home, please share this delightful e-zine with them!
