Judy, Judy, Judy

June 21st, is my beautiful daughter's 27th birthday! I can't believe she is that dang old. I guess that makes me ancient.

She is NOT the one in the middle but is posed with her boyfriend, Alex. Remind me to post the how-they-met story, one day.

Here's another photo of Judy and Alex--from when they were 15!

Judy has always been a cute girl. Here is proof.

I hope she finds today to be amazing! Happy Birthday, Baby. Here's one more clip.

#MMMM Wonderful Places!

Musical Monday is all about songs with places in their titles. I would love to travel to these places this summer, but whoa is me, I'm not going to any beaches or mountains.

This song is in honor of my daughter Erica who is spending a good part of her summer in the Colorado Rockies. I wish I could join her!

In honor of Erica, I will also feature her beautiful clipart. She is quite talented and even bakes adorable and delicious cakes. Here's the one she made for Cinco De Mayo. If anyone lives in Atlanta, she will be moving there and needs some buyers for her cakes.

I love her movie clip art, too!

#MMMM: Sibling's Day

I know I've posted this video before but when the topic is "Sibling's Day", there is none better. I am fortunate enough to have one big bother and two older sisters. My family is so cool that I couldn't help but follow them wherever they went. I remember this song coming on the radio while my sister gave me dirty looks. Too bad. She's stuck with me! Here is Sweet.

I followed my sister so much, that I even attended DEPO, which was the high school dance! I remember one of her guy friends getting on his knees to dance with me. I'm not sure what song we danced to, but DEPO always makes me think of Peter Frampton, so here he is. On another note, one of my son's friends is a neighbor of Frampton's, in Nashville. Old man Frampton has lost his beautiful long hair, but he still is a legacy, at least in my mind! I love the Moog Synthesizer.

Happy birthday to Mary's brother! 
My oldest sister also has a June birthday. 
She will be XX on June 18th. 
Hint: She's six and a half years older than me, 
so DANG, she's old. 
Happy Birthday, Barbie!

Do you need a way to keep little siblings happy so that they don't tag after the big ones all summer long? If so, Catch My Products!

Monday Music Moves Me to 60s Rock Songs

First up, from the wild and turbulent 1968, comes a Beatles song that tells it all, Helter Skelter.

"I've got blisters on my fingers!"

Next up are the Rolling Stones. I had a tough time choosing one song because Mick Jagger was and is that good. He was so young in the sixties, but in 2017, he still has the moves!

As I watch the concert game spin across Facebook, I thought about adding this band at the bottom of my list of those I've seen in concert to see if the young people even know they're a band--that I haven't had the pleasure of seeing.

Guess Who?

Okay. I cheated a little with that one. Although the band has some good songs from the 60s, I wanted this one, which was released in 1970. Back in college, I went to a bar where they had just finished playing American Woman. A foreign looking man with his shirt unbuttoned and huge gold bling hanging around his neck approached me with his arms spread out and his hips shaking. He sang, "Amereecan Wooman." All I could do was sing, "Get away from me."

Who Was Albert Einstein?

My kids are participating in an Einstein Unit that involves chemistry experiments, Hands on Equations, and reading Who was Albert Einstein? I admit I'm pushing it a bit since Einstein was not a chemist, but we've had too much fun mixing vinegar and baking soda and watching bubbles or using pH paper to decide what chemical spilled from a toy truck. Next up is a mock digestion lesson from ECHEM (Environment, Chemicals, and Me).

As for the math, Hands on Equations teaches elementary school kids how to solve algebra problems by moving cubes and pawns. With one month left of school, I'm trying to squeeze in as much as I can.

Our book study, Who Was Albert Einstein?, is a fascinating book. It's from that popular biography series that all the kids are reading these days. I don't know about the kids, but I've learned a lot. For example, I had no clue that Einstein was expelled in high school. He was quite a strong willed person who followed his beliefs no matter the consequences. Pretty cool guy. 

If you want to read this book with your kids, you don't have to go it alone. I've done the work by making a Promethean Board flipchart and Power Point to accompany Who was Albert Einstein? When reading a novel, I like to have a plan about how to teach it. It's good to know what to ask the kids and when. I also like having an occasional project or activity, too. Inside this home made Einstein bundle, one will find the following:

     ➢Introduction to Novel with Visible Thinking Routines
     ➢Information about the Author and other Who Was . . . Books
     ➢Discussion of Quotes from Einstein
     ➢Text dependent questions
     ➢Venn Diagrams to Compare and Contrast
     ➢Questions to Relate Book to Student
     ➢Writing Prompts
     ➢What if Questions
     ➢Opinion Questions
     ➢Interview Einstein Challenge
     ➢Teacher Notes

Traveling Music

I bet you thought I was done blogging. Well, I'm not. I've just been preoccupied with other things. I'm glad to be hopping on the Monday Music Moves Me train with TRAVELING songs.

This is the first one that comes to mind. I love The Allman Brothers and Ramblin' Man is a great song!

Next up is Arlo Gurthrie singing The City of New Orleans.

And finally, here are my favorite excellent travelers of all times, Bill and Ted.
