Learning about God's Creation

We had a park day yesterday with our homeschool group where we learn about a different topic from God's Creation. Yesterday it was about insects. A sweet friend of ours is in charge of these Science park days. She teaches the children about the various topics. It's awesome! She loves Science and knows a lot about nature. Her enthusiasm is contagious. We took our ant farm and a frog that Clayton caught. Our friend found a large snapping turtle at the park. It's been a long time since I held a turtle. Clayton and one of his friends found this large egg in the water of the lake. There are a lot of geese at this lake, so maybe it's a goose egg.

Our ants are doing great in our farm. When we received the first batch of ants, there were only 5 or 6 live ants. The rest were dead and in pieces which means that they had been dead for a while. My husband called the company and they sent a new batch. We now have a whole bunch of busy ants making tunnels in the gel. I learned yesterday that the gel is from a NASA invention. They took ants up into space and needed to give them food and water in a non-messy form. By the way, if you ever want to order bugs, I've heard that Insect Lore is the place to buy them. I'll know next time!
