Great day of School with Snakes!
Today has been another great school day...on a roll so far..lol...only 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 rocks...so 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 kids...love 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)
