    Enjoyed hearing all the interesting details of a ladybug. I also clicked on some other videos on you tube. I viewed two others. The first was a duck who took on the role of being a mother to several abandoned kittens. Even animals have hearts of compassion.

    Having been a collector of elephants, I viewed a mother giving birth. Absolutely amazing to witness the mother’s instincts and abilities to spank/slap her baby who was not breathing with her foot and trunk. Then the baby took her first breath while the mother was checking her out. Incredibly the mother was not done. She used her trunk to keep lifiting her baby encouraging it to stand and walk. The intricacies of each thing that God has created are incredible.

    My first grader will LOVE doing this! We are seriously considering homeschooling our boys next year. I’ve always loved the title of your blog when I see it at NOBH, but I haven’t perused it much until now! I will definitely be back. 😉
    Love and God Bless,
