Anyways, I'm going to talk about science.
Exactly what about science I dunno, but we'll work it through as the week goes along.
I've recently started a series on Doing a Nature Study over atLittle Learning Lovies. You can findthat post here. Kinda neat to write for someone else once in a while. :)
Doing this has gotten me think about doing more nature study myself.
Then we spotted three voles inside the rabbit cage, and try as he might the lad couldn't catch them. He did set out the live trap under the rabbit cage though, in the hopes that tomorrow he'll find voles.
I do need to tell you that he has some voles in an aquarium in the basement. it's an excellent way to study them. We read on-line about how they like to dig tunnels and boy oh boy do they like to dig tunnels. :) It's so funny watching them, they just automatically plunk their heads under the hay/sawdust and tunnel their way through.
He rushed downstairs, and then quickly sped upstairs yelling MOM, We need more!!!! They love it mom!!!!
I told him we'll get them more melon next week again and he was so disappointed.
It's a grand way to do nature study and causes no long term harm to anything. Once we're done watching them, most of the voles will go to become part of a breeding colony for the raptor rescue. :) They will survive and their offspring will be put to good use helping train healing raptors how to hunt for their natural prey.

Just Go out and study the world around you. Check it out.. whether it bugs, bees, birds, nest built, tunnels dug, snow falling or rivers rising... just get on out and just look at what's out there and do some thinking on it while you're there. :)
