This month I decided to do something a little different…. Just a little. As you may know Jacob, our oldest son, has moved back home! YAY!!!!!! And since then we have dredged up a bit of an old family tradition. We call it “The Music Game”. In The Music Game, The Hubby will play a song and the rest of us have to name the band and the song title, extra points if you know the year. We do songs from almost all genres and spanning at least 6 decades. The older kids LOVE it and the little ones love to listen along.

So, if you were a fly on the wall at my house over the past month, here are a few songs you might have heard.




























Hope you had fun!!!! These are just a few of my favorites that we have heard while playing The Music Game! 😉

It definitely helps with the kids’ musically knowledge. Maybe one day I will do a list of their favorite classical pieces. LOL

Don’t forget to check out all the amazing bloggers on the list!!!!
