Great day of School with Snakes!

Today has been another great school day...on a roll so three days in!

Picture from yesterday's craft...finally glue dried

Our postman gave us a tip that there was a momma Gardner snake and her babies down by the front of our property hanging out by some of course we got our shoes on and grabbed our camera...made a lesson out of it!  Why not right! (we see them a lot but not this year yet due to the cold weather)

When we got down there there were 4 snakes, the mom was less vibrant and more active.  None of the kids were afraid, which was good at this point, however will have to teach them good from bad snakes.  There was a neighbor walking her dog also standing there watching them all and I said so hard to see them with the leaves and brush. Molly immediately said " that is what being camouflaged is called..."   I was smiling and the neighbor said "I am impressed!"    ah...homeschooled it!

Sammie decided to "read" some Franklin books...she was talking a mile a minute...

Our newest Flat Traveler arrived today from Ohio!  (I will be blogging about that soon)

Continued our research about butterflies...

Facts you may or may-not know about Butterflies

  • There are over 20,000 different types of butterflies
  • Butterflies can't hear sound.
  • Butterflies smell with their antennae.
  • They taste with their feet!
Fun huh!


3 days of happiness?!? Excellent. My kids would LOVE to have some snakes in our yard but it's a little too suburban for them. And too cold!

oo love reading the facts about the butterflies! Glad you guys got to "enjoy" the snakes.. I would have had to fight my fear so that Sammy wouldn't be afraid of them WTG!
Some fun ideas! Love the critters made from the egg cartons. And the covered wagon... hmmm... looks like something cool going on there too!
