More river video. We got the biggest kick out of Mr. Puddle Duck and his lack of being able to get his tail feathers up in the air like his buddy. Watching the back end go up and the little orange feet just a going..... It gave us good entertainment.
Since the first day we got side tracked and didn't look for mammal tracks we set to work this time trying to find some. We found plenty. Plenty of our tracks that is. No such luck for mammal animal tracks although sometimes, I would wager The Native's can be considered very much animals.
We did find some tracks however and did take photos of them. Not mammals..... can you see it? You have to look really close and hard.
Here, I'll show you. Now do you know what it is? Yeah. Mr. and Mrs. Puddle Duck.
|Told ya I can't draw.........|
We also learned something surprising this morning that was a complete surprise to us. Remember all of the pine cones Mr. J found and put in a tin can? We put them on the hearth to dry since they were soaking wet.
See anything different? Mr. J noticed one had fallen off the hearth this morning and when we picked it up to put it back we noticed why.
They open up when they dry out! And here I thought they did this on the tree....... Who knew! Kind of fun learning new things.
And last but not least. This is what happens when the pavement gets in a fight with your baby. The pavement wins. Poor boy.
Earlier this week we learned about bunnies and drew bunny tracks in our nature notebooks. We'll be wrapping up our week by going outside in nature again and marveling at all of God's creations and how blessed we are to be surrounded by much beauty. Next week it's music appreciation week as we learn about Antonin Dvorak. A Czech Romantic Composer. Happy March weekend!
