Baby Squirrels

We share our little corner of the Garden State with many creatures, both great and small,
including hawks, owls, ground hogs (aka wood chucks),Opossum,chipmunks,rabbits, cardinals,
blue jays,and squirrels.Today I want to share some photos of our newest neighbors...two baby squirrels.

We could spend hours watching them rough house and cuddle.
We assume they are brothers, because that is how they act.

Both girls go running out into the backyard when we hear them in the flower bed
outside the kitchen window. This Cedar tree is where they live..the other day we watched them carrying bits and pieces to the nest.

They are adorable and a unit study is underway. Isn't Spring wonderful?

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
