P.S. Little girls DO NOT like to touch the alligator! This is the "man's" job. lol!
Boy, is he ever getting bigger or what?!
We will let you know how are alligator's growth continues. The kids had a fun time with this experiment . . . they love science the most! I liked to see them working together and The "Scout" was able to conduct this experiment with his little sister, having very little help from me (I was just guiding & and adding facts). She learns so well when he is doing the teaching! The experiment has really help The "Bug" (only 5 years old) grasp the scientific method and helped her in understanding graphing and charting. It was also and excellent exercise in continuous learning. The "right now" method did not apply in this experiement. They have had to keep working on it everyday in order to have correct results.
We are hoping to get more from Holy Cow Science. This kit we just did is no longer available, but there are many others still to experience. The Science In A Bag kits run from $4.95 to $8.95 per kit. They also carry some awesome Science Project Kits, that really help with presentation, method and much more. We are hoping to let The "Scout" enter a Science Project this spring, we'll probably want one of these kits then. Holy Cow Science is a christian business with science knowledge to boot . . . give them a try.
What we will be purchasing next . . .
* The Beat Goes On (Science Project Kit) $19.95
* UB The UV Detective! (Science In A Bag Kit) $8.95
* The Golden-rod Rule! (Science In A Bag Kit) $5.95
* Wacky Water Tricks! (Science In A Bag Kit) $4.95

The Frontiersman’s Daughter by Laura Frantz was a truly enjoyable read for my first “official” book report . . . Oh, I mean book review! This story follows the life of a young woman, Lael Click, and her family living in a barely civilized Kentucky settlement. The author was very descriptive in the smallest details of frontier living, no doubt, gained from the author’s grandmother, whom she recognizes on the dedication page of the book. I believe this book truly grasps the frontier spirit, lifestyle and language, which makes the book fascinating and educational. I learned many phrases, terms and slang that I had no knowledge of previously.
Excerpt from novel:
“Here and there hung linsey dresses, a pair of winter boots, some woolen leggins, strings of dried apples and leather-britches beans, bunches of tobacco, and other sundry articles.”
This story takes a look at the frontier life, as seen by a young woman, just coming of age. I enjoyed the perspective of the heroine, Lael, whose caring spirit and nature are constantly pushing her to confront difficult issues, typical & not-so-typical to frontier life. She makes some amazing discoveries along her journey that come though enduring some heavy losses and trials. Lael is ultimately challenged in her faith and beliefs throughout these trials. The author was good at keeping me guessing, which is not typically easy to do. Lael’s story is full of interesting frontier citizens; Native American’s and new exciting strangers that help teach her and challenge her. The author is talented at uncovering the true trials and temptations that a young woman on the untamed frontier would have face. This book may also be a good selection for a young teen woman, struggling with today’s peer pressure and purity. I enjoyed the fresh perspective on this time in America’s history and I think you may, as well.
