Family Tragedy

I'm posting today for prayers for my family.  We lost my cousin, his fiance, and three year old child in an awful car accident. (news story)   His one year old daughter is fighting for her life in the hospital and their 11 year old has a cracked skull and broken arm.  There is also a 9 year old that needs your prayers for the loss of so many family members.  She was at summer camp during the accident.

I've set up a Memorial fund page to help with the financial burdens for the family.  If God puts it on your heart to donate, here is the link:

Exploring Bugs!

Spring weather mixed with a love of nature and curiosity equals .. bug exploration!

At a recent visit to the library, my little man was introduced to a book about pill bugs followed by a hunt outside of the library for  the critters.

I loved the preschool squeals as the children found and held pill bugs.  Ever since that trip, little man has been fascinated with searching for bugs during our times outdoors.  Below are some resources to enrich your little bug hunters at home!

ABC Bug Scavenger Hunt: free printable over at The Activity Mom.  I enjoyed creating this hunt for my children. 

Worm Activities: another recent post I shared over at The Activity Mom. Book suggestions and learning ideas.

Ladybug Songs: activity fun for little ones

I hope that these resources will be helpful!
