I am not a band geek like my husband, but I do appreciate music! Our local high school has decided to NOT have a band director next year. They have a football team and lots of resources for a virtual PE class using the Wii and its add-ons, but no band!
I am so very grateful that I not only get to homeschool, but next year spend the time studying art and MUSIC everyday. My children will not have a homecoming football game to attend, or be on the prom court, but they will learn how to think and how to appreciate more than just text books with test!
