Random Homeschool Fact Learned Today

*Scientists believe there are over 1,000,000,000,000,000 ants on the planet right now.

Ewwww. That's just the ants! I do not like beetley, leggy, crunchy, up-close scary lookin' insects.

*Ants can carry 50 times their own weight.

I can't imagine carrying ONE of me around.

*Besides your typical red, brown and black, ants come in these rockin' colors as well:
blue, yellow, white, purple, orange and green...

No, I am not kidding. We read it in our Nature Trivia book today. And unlike the Internet, I tend to believe what is written in a non-fiction, nature fact book for kids. No wonder some cultures eat them like candy. "You like the orange ones? Like ewwww. My fave are the purple ones. They taste so like grapes if you close your eyes and use your imagination!"

Can't wait to read about bat guano. It's coming. Yippee. More poop. Bat's this time. Bat Poop. Nature. Trivia. They love it.

Love Note to my Big Shooter: 2 weeks back on the Slave Ship. It's hittin' like a ton of bricks Big Guy. Let things go this weekend Love. Rest. Restore. Rejuvenate.
Besides, the kids are leaving Sunday...you're gonna need it...

I didn't know some of this stuff about aNtS. I do know you don't have to invite them to a picnic for them to show up... they just can't stand to miss a party.
