Diana and Friends Experience History Through Music Give-Away-- $700+Value!

I am super excited to participate in the launch of Experience History Though Music by Diana Waring. Our family owned these sets years ago and enjoyed them then. Several moves and a house fire later and I'm not sure where we lost them along the way but because I knew how good these were I jumped at the chance to be part of this launch program. Not only have we loved Diana Waring's stuff for years, but we are participating in CC-Cycle 3 is U.S. History, along with working through America the Beautiful and planning a field trip to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead in DeSmet this summer (one of our fav field trips of all time!) So, YES, this fits in to our life on so many levels. What better way to truly understand the history of a time than to gain a deep understanding of the music of the time. Stay tuned- my review will post the week of June 30. Until then, console yourself with this phenomenal $700+ give-away!

I always thought the the frontier days would be a neat time to live in. That is until I became a mother. They had A LOT of work!

My family helped homestead the Dakota Territory. That is some of my favorite periods of history. So much is happening all over at that time.
