Morning Nature Study

Hurricane Irene is churning out there but here in Florida we are feeling the affects. The wind and rain. We are praying for  all of the East Coast for safety and protection from Our Almighty Father.
I captured this picture outside our home.

My husband was leaving in the morning and saw these cute baby ducks. We went outside to get a peek. We decided to feed them. The babies stay right next to her mommy, it reminds me how we need to stay close to our Heavenly Father.

D Man loving the wind.

Ducky feeding the ducks, so cute.

I love these opportunities and it reminds why nature is so important to all of us. Breathing the fresh air, looking at whats around us and feeling the wind on our faces.

Hats for the hurting

Our son has decided he is going to make hats for babies in Miami Children's Hospital. These children have some kind of heart problem. He wants to give something special to these children from his heart.
I think it is a great idea and I love his serving heart.

This is the loom in which he uses to make the hats with.

Apologia Swimming Creatures-Lesson 1(Aquatic Animals)

Try This!!

This experiment was about learning about pressure in the ocean.
Steping on the bottle simulates what happens to your lungs when you dive down in the depths of the ocean.  Your lungs get smaller when you dive deeper into the ocean and the pressure on your body increases. When you release the pressure from the bottle this is what happens to your lungs when you surface back to the top of the ocean. Now you can see why divers use oxygen tanks to breathe under the water. They also use them to increase the pressure in a diver's lungs so they won't collaspe as he dives deeper into the ocean.


Which is heavier: hot or cold water?
