Allow me to think about your delemia and get back to you on storage options. I misread your orginal post and thought you were having a 3rd child. I now see this is your second. My apologies.

No, a horse is not an athlete.

The definition of athlete is:
A person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise.

I am seeking advice. I need to know which baseball card forum has moderators that do not moderate with the style of soviet-era China.

As I am researching storage space efficancy tomorrow, I will also look into this.

We just started teaching "specials" to the kids at the school I work at, and I was pegged with music class on Mondays. This Monday is my first one and so I'll now be teaching a 45 minute "music class" to about 30 kids, all of whom have major behavior problems or ADHD or both. And musically, I played some strings growing up but I'm definitely not a music teacher. So I'm worried I will fry alive this coming Monday, if not ensuing Mondays.

So...what should I teach on Monday?

Yes. My other BIL, whom I believe is back on "the drugs", left this evening so he could be home tomorrow for a "group project meeting" tomorrow am for one of his college classes. So I'm the designated driver...

Music can be very therapeutic. Maybe you could teach the art of listening to music. You could have the kids bring in some music they like (for a following Monday, of course) as long as it doesn't contain anything inappropriate for everyone to hear. You could also have them try to identify certain instruments, etc. How old are the children you teach?

Should've led with age, mixed ages, youngest is 7 oldest is 14 (1-8). I was thinking of starting with listening to talk about note values, rhythm, etc. for this Monday but then on Friday during PH groups (they have two hour-long psych groups in the morning that focus on feelings/family/behaviors/etc,) one of the therapists did a thing where she played songs and had the kids write their feelings. Worried I'd be a bit overkill if we did listening, and also some of the more restless kids then wanted to get up and dance and get in the face of their peers, which is tough in my room of 10 kids but is even tougher in a room of 30 obviously haha.

But I still may go with something like that. I like the instrument idea a lot though too! I'm also thinking in the future of potentially doing a group thing for song writing since I teach inner city and most of the kids only like rap. Could work on vocab, writing in general, rhythms, etc. with that. But that's down the road for sure.

My orginal answer stands...SOL. I would make your wife responsible for telling them about the time frame, etc. It is always better to come from a direct relation.

What you could do is find a simple rap, and then explain the different lengths of the notes and rests.

Sounds pretty solid. I was sort of thinking introducing some terms with a song and then doing some compare contrast with other songs to show how the differences in length/rests/rhythms/notes/etc. work. Obviously starting smaller and then getting more complex as we go.

Do you intend on teaching note values with the "Takadimi" method?

When I was taught in strings we did "ta" and "taka" which I guess is similar to Takadimi (I had to google it haha). So I would say yes, I was probably going to do ta-ka-ta-ka but I like how Ta-ka-di-mi differentiates more.

As I'm sure most everyone here is aware of, my brother-in-law and I don't get along. I mean, we REALLY don't get along. I feel like I've tried everything with him. I even sucked it up and let him and his family come on a trip with my wife and I (he invited himself!).

Our hostile relationship has nearly led to physical confrontations, something I'd never want. I feel like I've tried everything with this guy, and nothing seems to work. Any advice?

For those interested, here's a little log of our family vacation to Syracuse, along with some other experiences: I Need To Vent

Yes, organized boxing match. I think you can take him, he sounds like a total pansy.
