While we didn't do much in the way of (scheduled) science, the kids had a blast examining the bones of a possum we found last year. They tried to guess what the different bones were (skull, mandible, vertebrae, ribs, scapula, teeth) and even pretended to put them together in some really kooky ways! Unfortunately I didn't take a picture 'cause I was busy doing dishes while they explored.

We hit up the library and got a bunch of new books. One that Miss M picked out is a joke book. We all laughed at this joke about banks:
|Why is it so hard to keep a secret in the bank? Because there are so many tellers.|
|A poor Ruby-Throated Hummingbird visiting my feeder while it snows.|
|Miss M, Hubby, and Little Guy all sporting new haircuts.|
After commenting that she could feel it fluttering in her hands, she decided it would be kindest to let it go so it could get back to the work of finding nectar and laying eggs. Good choice, Miss M!
We're very excited to begin our study of the states next week!
