A lesson on birds...

So, we are studying birds in science right now. Yesterday was is what Bekah is learning...
We talked about ducks and drakes, and if our family were ducks would mommy be a duck or a drake...daddy? Caleb? etc. So, after the duck/ drake game, I asked Bekah, what do you call a male duck? "Hmmm...I don't know." "OK, Bekah, it starts with a drrrrr" And she says, "a drunk!" I'm thinking that is what I may end up being!!
Today, we talked about birds of prey. This was fun because we made up a song about vultures and condors being scavengers...allow me, if you will, and you will have to place it to the tune of "The Pirates who don't do Anything":
We are the scavengers who don't kill anything. We just find dead animals and eat them up. And if you ask us to kill anything, we'll just tell you, we don't kill anything.
So Bekah says afterwards..."so, if a car runs over a dead animal, a vulture would look around to see if another car was coming. And, if one wasn't coming, he would swoop down and eat the dead animal."
She also knows how many years are in a century!!!

Bekah is officially my new hero. You must explain to Bekah that, while vultures first look for cars before swooping out of the sky on dead prey, drunk ducks have a tendency to swoop down without looking - and get squished on a regular basis. R(Y)

not only do you have things to blog about after all, but they also make me laugh out loud that is hilarious. today I entered a single stem of sedum into the Petrolia fair, among some other pathetic flowers of mine. A friend came by to see my entries and Jonam proceeded to point out that the sedum was in a shot glass, which I defended by saying that I do not drink and Neal uses it for his coffee, to which Evan replied, "or sometimes he drinks whiskey. He has had the same kind in the cupboard for more than 3 years." silence
