A Blog Treasure: "It's Not on the Test" Song

Thanks to a homeschooling mama for posting this video on her blog (which I discovered this evening) along with the following quote:

"Just as eating against one's will is injurious to health, so study without a liking for it spoils the memory, and it retains nothing it takes in." --Leonardo Da Vinci




She also passed on the very clever idea of using rain gutters to house books for the kids, with fronts displayed. I wonder if there is somewhere in the new house where we have good wall space to do this? This is one of the pictures she shared of the "reading corner" in her house:


So I guess that makes two major treasures discovered!
