My lovely daughter, Booklover, posted this amazing link on her blog, but since you all don't even know her informative blog even exists, I am helping her out here. This is a very interesting story for bird and bug lovers. Go check it out! What? You want to know what it is about first? Oh, okay. It is a short article, with photos, of course, about a praying mantis that caught a hummingbird for lunch. It is incredible. Unfortunately for the bird (or fortunately for the mantis, depending which way you look at it) this probaby is a common event, but not often seen by man? Maybe I just live in the wrong part of the country. I'll have to keep my eyes open.
Also, did you know that Susan Marlow, author of the Circle C Adventures series for kids, is hosting a fiction writer's workshop for FREE? Booklover is having an absolute blast creating characters, describing scenes, and giving life to the "dead" words in her stories. And she is getting wonderful feedback, from a REAL author, not just, you know, Mom. Best of all, this was Booklover's idea, not mine, and she does not classify this as "school work", because it is way too much fun to call it "school''. But you and I both know it counts, ha ha ha! Sigh, I just love it when that happens! Anyway, back to the writer's workshop, it can be started at any time. Just begin with lesson one.
