Celebrate & Two Big Announcements!

Happy Math and Music Monday!

I am so excited and truly can’t believe I’m going to say what I’m about to say… (deep breath) Today is our ONE-year anniversary of Math & Music Monday! ONE YEAR! Can you believe it?!? Today is our one-year anniversary of blogging every Monday. Wow, it literally happened in a blink of an eye. What a year!

Fun Fact

“Take time to reflect and celebrate!” – Math and Music Mommy

When thinking about this one-year anniversary, these words came to mind: “Take time to reflect and celebrate!”   I think this is so important. As I get older, time seems to be moving faster and faster. I have to remind myself… It is SO important to take time and reflect on the year and celebrate it. I am so grateful for this project. I am so glad that I stepped into this challenge and will be forever grateful for this time and these activities with our family. I am SO grateful for all the supporters of this project! Without your love and support, this blog wouldn’t happen. What an amazing year it has been!

One year ago today, I posted the first Math and Music Monday Blog, and we did our first Math and Music Monday activity. I recently went back and read that first blog. I remember feeling so SO nervous, wondering if I could really do it. Blogging is so outside of my comfort zone, but it was something I felt I was being called to do. I only tell this story because I hope to encourage you, dear reader, to do something that makes you a little nervous. I promise it is totally worth it! You will be SO glad you did! For me, blogging every week is now something I truly LOVE! The goal of my blogs… the reason I keep going is because I want to encourage everyone who reads these blogs to keep making a difference in their child’s life. That time is so, so precious and truly makes a difference (even when it doesn’t feel like it!) I am nowhere near perfect… but I am committed! I woke up this very morning to sister P telling me how many triangles she sees in the rock of our fireplace. Lol

Then she continued to tell me that if she sees three triangles that that is actually NINE sides all together! I just LOVE how their little minds work! I love how children see the world around them, don’t you?

Ok… I could go on and on and on… but I won’t. Let’s get going with the two big announcements! This has been an amazing year. Not only have I blogged for one year, posted everyday on social media for a year, but we have also released TWELVE Math and Music Learning Videos and Activities!! I can’t believe it! We also just found out that those very videos and website are now NOMINATED for a Heartland EMMY! This is a TOTAL DREAM COME TRUE!

We won’t find out the results until July 20th… but I will for sure keep you posted!

To CELEBRATE this accomplishment and keep the learning going this summer… we want to make our videos more accessible to EVERYONE! If you remember, the whole reason for our Math and Music Monday project was to provide meaningful activities each Monday to keep the learning during the summer and then for the whole year! So, NOW on our YouTube Channel, our Math and Music videos are FREE! Go watch and use them as many times as you want! Share them with your friends! We want to help keep the learning going for as MANY Children as we can this summer! Please go to our YouTube page (Ally Dog Depot Link Here) and subscribe to our channel! We will be releasing our NEXT Math and Music Video NEXT WEEK! Trust me, it’s a good one! Don’t worry… We will still have the activities and extensions on our website for the subscribed members too!

I will have more exciting announcements throughout this week on our social media pages… so be sure to check those out! Thank you again to ALL of you. I am forever grateful for your love and support!

Don’t worry… We have some FUN activities planned for this SUMMER of Math and Music Monday’s! You won’t want to miss them! So be sure to check back soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

We hope you all have a wonderful Math and Music Monday or even a wonderful Math and Music WEEK!

Don’t forget to check out our Math and Music Videos to keep the learning going this week! As always, we would love to hear from you on how things are going!
