This is our first day of school, after breakfast we went under the carport to have school instead of like regular kids. A change of environment helps add a little excitement to our day. Lisa was my teacher's aide.
We started the day after everyone dressed and had breakfast together. We then gathered all the items we needed to take our classroom outside. Thanks Dad for setting the table outside yesterday.
Our first day was spent dissecting an owl pellet. We learned owls spit out the pellets instead of 'pooping' them out.
Saenz really got a kick out of digging around in the pellet after soaking it in a bowl of water to soften it for easier removal.
We need to find Zephyr size googles and gloves for our next experiment.
Rodent skull in mom's hand. We found four complete skulls, rib bones, 2 spines, lots of various unidentified bones. (We saved those for another day.) Then as things were getting interesting and the temperature was rising two of our goats made a great escape. So we used the Music Bells, Grumpy Gramps sent us to herd them back in the pen.
Then we came back inside for lunch, Saenz had a headache and took a nap. Later when it cools off we are planting tomato, chives, cilantro, lettuce, muscadine from seed. Plus we are going to try Melodie's planting of a pineapple top to see if we can get a tree going. Not a bad first day.
