All the talk about the deer skull and feathers made my boy remember we have a nature box. In it we found an owl pellet that was given to us by an old neighbor who found it in the woods. Once he realized their were bones in it, well the obvious happened. Dissection.
The kids begged me to get the ant hill. So we will be watching ants this summer and hopefully they will stay in the ant hill. I think some nature field trips are going to be on my agenda this summer.
