He's been super competitive lately. Which is cute.
Even still, I'm not sure how I feel about the sassy nature of his words towards his sister this morning...
Let's have a competition. See whose bird best!
|I know I'm mom, but I adore her drawing style.|
She declined, having inherited her mother's competition averse nature. It didn't stop him from later assessing both of their entries and declaring his the winner.
|His drawing includes an Eastern Bluebird, a nest, and mistletoe berries.|
I do wholeheartedly agree with him that his bird is "sooooo cute" but his sister's is equally adorable.
Nature journaling never fails to provide me with an *I heart homeschooling* moment.
For the curious, once a week-ish we'll read from Birds Every Child Should Know while they add a sketch into their nature journal. We also use the Audubon iPad app to learn more about the bird, listen to their calls, and use the image to guide our drawing.
