You Know Your a Homeschooling Momma.....

You know your a homeschooling Momma when...

1. You carry an unidentified insect around in your purse to see if your fellow Mommas know what it is.

It looks like we have a paper wasp. I wanted to know what they were because on our first warm day last week they were EVERYWHERE! G was so petrified. This guy happen to make it into the house so I whacked him but it only stunned him. Then we put him in a baggy and finally this tray.

2. You take 50 million pictures of your new bird feeder so you can identify birds you've never cared two cents about before.

We have a group of European Starlings that visit everyday.
They are not good sharers and spend a lot of time squabbling.

Here is a really neat fact....
All the European Starlings in North America descended from 100 birds released in New York's Central Park in the early 1890s. A group dedicated to introducing America to all the birds mentioned in Shakespeare's works set the birds free. Today, European Starlings range from Alaska to Florida and northern Mexico, and their population is estimated at over 200 million birds.

We had a new visitor today... A Downy Woodpecker (maybe 2 ) I think we may have a pair. The first one was definitely a male but the second may have been a female; it was to quick.
