2011 Ultimate Blog Party
Hello everyone! I just joined the 2011 Ultimate Blog Party. It looks like a blast! If you are new to my blog, welcome to The Journey!
I am a Christian stay-at-home-mom in Nevada and homeschool our 10 year old son whom has Asperger's Syndrome. This is a high-functioning part of the Autism Spectrum.
I was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons. I have had major symptoms for more than three years, but it took awhile to diagnose...mainly due to the fact that I am now just 43 years old and it wasn't even thought of as a possibility.
I blog about a variety of topics...basically whatever is on my mind and/or that I am dealing with at the time. Most of my posts tend to be about homeschooling, Aspergers and other special needs, dealing with early-onset Parkinsons, and reflections on daily life and struggles.
I have also just begun (this week) a new series of posts called Music Adventures. These are short, user-friendly music lessons to use with your children. These lessons do not require the parent/teacher to have ANY musical experience to be successful.
We will explore the different aspects of music appreciation and theory. This includes concepts such as: music history, instruments and their families, movement and art to music, playing basic rhythm instruments, and learning about beat, pitch, note construction, dynamics, tempo, etc.
I am so glad that you stopped by. I will attempt to check out as many of the blogs as possible at the Party. But as you know, the list is extremely long. SO, if you leave me a comment below, I will definitely make sure that I check out your blog.
Be sure to connect with me on Twitter, too! You can find me at TheJourney_1
