Weekly Wrap Up

Linking up with Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers

This week was quite the musical week! On Tuesday we were gifted a guitar by one of the moms of the girls who teach our homeschool art class. It's an older, child-sized guitar, but perfect sized for Brianna. She has actually mentioned several times over the last few years about wanting to learn how to play guitar, so this was perfect!

Tanya joined air cadets a couple weeks ago and decided she wanted to learn how to play the flute for cadet band. This works out great as I had always planned to encourage the girls to learn the flute seeing as how I own one.

This week, Tanya brought her flute home from cadets, Brianna got very excited. When I told her I had planned on teaching them to play, you'd think I had just hung the moon!

My flute and ooooold high school music book
Today we had our first music class. Tanya had learned the C and B notes in her cadet class yesterday, but we'll be following my old high school music book and did the F and E notes. Now of course, to help her with her cadets stuff, any sheet music she needs to learn there, we'll be doing the exact same thing here as a tune as simple as Jingle Bells can have 16 different variations of sheet music.

We also had sadness this week as our 10.5 year old cat, Timmy died. Timmy grew up with Brianna as he was born in my bedroom less than 2 months before she was born. We do have our new kitten Bacon (that Brianna got for her birthday over the summer) to keep us smiling though.


  1. Sorry to hear about your loss. We lost our guinea pig this week. Always so sad to say goodbye to pets, they are so much part of the family.
    My kids were in Air Cadets, now they're doing the Army Cadets!

  2. Sorry to hear about your guinea pig :( Cadets is fun! I'm hoping once Brianna's old enough that she wants to join!

  3. Hi I found you in my search for fellow homeschoolers. I have 3 I homeschool; a 4yr old daughter, 8 year old son, and 11 year old daughter. All 7 of my children play a different instrument and yes, there is a flute in there, lol. Hope you'll visit me at
