Children are naturally curious creatures and with so many under one roof coupled with the fact that we homeschool, we are frequently looking things up to answer the various questions that arise. For instance, the children found that one of the chickens had laid an egg the size of a cherry tomato. We looked it up and found out that such an egg occurs on occasion, that there is no yolk inside and that they are called – by some – fairy eggs.
Here are some other fairy eggs we found this week:
- It’s the first week of Advent and we need proper music to light our Advent candle each night. This version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel by the Piano Guys is one of our favorites.
- We were very disappointed to discover that this story in my son’s early reader did not involve motorcycles:
- We learned quite a bit about pond insects in science:
- We came across this cute little bracelet while doing Secret Santa shopping. It’s a Rosary decade, but I think it would also be a great replacement for sacrifice beads ala Saint Thérèse of Lisieux:
