While Little Man was watching "his" cedar waxwing babies grow, Princess had a nest she was keeping an eye on too. "Her" nest belonged to a mourning dove. She got great pictures, not only of the babies, but also of the mother dove! I will let her tell you all about "her" mourning doves herself.
My seven year old son, Little Man, found a nest with four eggs in it and he has been watching it and taking pictures of it all summer. He agreed to do a guest post for my blog to tell us about "his" baby birds :)
Today I have a guest post for you from Michele from MommyBloggerDirectory.com. Michele is a working mom of 3 who likes to share stories & ideas on her blog. Today she is going to share with us some ways she has found to save money on Christmas shopping. Thank you for sharing with us, Michele!
Christmas will be here much sooner than you expect. Finding the best deals for all the things on your family's wish list can be budget friendly when you begin looking for gifts early in the season. One of the biggest advantages of shopping online is that you can easily compare costs of the items that you need to create happy memories this holiday season.
Today I am over at Hip Homeschool Moms, sharing about Autumn on the Farm. Make sure you check it out at http://www.hiphomeschoolmoms.com/2013/10/autumn-fun-on-the-farm/.
Thanks! Don't forget that I will be taking a break for a few days, but I will be back soon!
Happy Thanksgiving from Canada!
My apologies for posting a second time today! Normally I don't post more than 3 or 4 times each week, and not more than once a day, but I am going to be taking a break from my blog for the next week and I have something exciting that I want to share with you before I do. Did you know that there are Homeschool Blog Awards? I just found out and as a new homeschool blogger, I am pretty excited about this opportunity!
Animals often play a big part in our dot-to-dot homeschool life! They provide some great hands-on, real-life learning! And lots of fun too!
Our cat had kittens this year and my children are thrilled! They spend many hours out in the barn playing with them. Often they will run into the house yelling, "Mom! There's a really cute picture in the barn! Can I borrow the camera?" It still makes me a little nervous to hand my camera over to my kids, but I have been showing Princess how to use it and how to take care of it properly and she has shown me that she can handle it. So, she has been borrowing the camera and has taken LOTS of pictures of the cats. She has taken some good pictures too. To encourage her, (and sneak some extra "school" in), I asked her if she would like to share her pictures with my readers and type something up about the kittens. She was very happy to do that. Here is her very first blog post :)
