Nature in Your Own Backyard
No matter where you live, there is always something interesting to be found in your own backyard. That's why nature is such a great thing to study in homeschooling. Every place that we have lived, there has always been some new creature to learn about. Like tree frogs in Myrtle Beach, hummingbird vines in Memphis, and now Desert Iguana Lizards in San Luis. We have a multitude of these guys in our yard, which is great because they eat spiders! And we have had lots of them, including black widows. But these two are the largest and they are obviously in love:-) and I think the female is pregnant (or just ate something rather large).
Don't miss the opportunities right in your own backyard to explore some of the wonderful creatures and plants that God has made. Take time to study nature in your own backyard! Let me know what interesting things you find.
