There is a lot of celebrating going on here...

CPSC has delayed the enforcement of the testing dates for at least one year. So, it looks like Hearts and Trees is back in business! I am going to be getting busy putting together a spring kit! And I am also going to be using all the great ideas you have all shared with me to hopefully expand Hearts and Trees.
So, I will be able to sell the remaining of my winter kits. I will still be offering them at the discounted price, so be sure to check them out if you haven't already.
Thank you for everyone who has left me a kind comment or email during the past month. I am so excited that I will still be able to sell my kits.

Vivaldi- Four Seasons- Winter

Today I thought I'd share a very nice YouTube video of Vivaldi's movement Winter from his Four Seasons. I think Vivaldi is probably my favorite composer because I love the violins. I hope you and your children take a few minutes today to enjoy the music of winter. (You may need to click through to the actual post if you are reading this in an email or reader since the videos and Amazon links don't always show up for some reason.)

If you are interested in learning more about Vivaldi, you can see my mom's Vivaldi composer study here. And if you are interested in purchasing a Vivaldi CD from Amazon, here are some to get you started (We own the first one and highly recommend it.):

I have also put together a free PDF notebooking page for Vivaldi. You can download it here at Lulu. And if you haven't seen my winter themed art, handicraft and nature study kit, check it out here! I only have a few left and only have a few more days left to sell them.
