  • UPDATE: Turns out the sharks, skates (rays), and chimaeras lay egg cases similar to this one. .
When I was a little girl, my cousins and I called these mermaid purses and, at some point, learned they could be shark eggs.
.
Emmett and I saw a ton of these egg cases at the beach this weekend, both on the beach, and in the water. When I told him they could be shark eggs, he asked how they hatch...
.
Internet to the rescue. We found a video about sharks hatching! It was really cool. We also learned these are called egg casings and you can identity the species based on the egg case! Super cool learning experience.
.
Thanks to a commenter, Emmett and I did further research about this egg case. It is most likely a Spotted Eagle Ray egg case.
  • Walking through aquarium tunnels never gets old! #thisishowwehomeschool
  • Have you ever seen a poison-dart frog?
.
This weekend, we had our first field trip for the summer at the Virginia Aquarium where we saw this awesome Dendrobatinae is a Green-and-Black Poison Dart Frog.
.
Emmett pointed out it was blue, not green. Which of course prompted more research. Turns out, the Green-and-Black Poison Dart Frog is typically mint green, however it can also be dark green, turquoise, pale yellow, or cobalt blue like this one.
  • For several years, I’ve been designing logos and brand materials on the side. My official site launch for @logodentity will be July 1st, but I'm already half booked through September! Stop by and signup to my newsletter for early access prices!
  • What curriculum do you use for English lessons in your homeschool?
.
For most of our Language Arts lessons, we use Spelling You See, Daily 6 Trait Writing, Editor in Chief, Italic Handwriting, and Language Smarts from Timberdoodle.
  • Something we didn’t expect to see at Comic Con was video games.
.
Naturally, Emmett was excited to discover they did. He got to play a Mario game on the Super Nintendo.
.
CRRL-Con was a lot of fun. We look forward to going again next year.
  • What Spring surprises have you found this month?
.
This is our first spring in this home and we’ve found some beautifully vibrant flowers in the yard. This purple, is one of my favorite colors.
  • What’s on your bookshelf?
.
Our bookshelf is an assortment of homeschool curriculum, nature magazines, wildlife resource books, fiction novels, arts and crafts, as well as some games. We also have a spot exclusively for library books. This makes it easy to keep track of returns. Soon we’ll be recycling the shelf and adding some built-in shelving to cover the whole wall, floor to ceiling. Because you can never have enough shelf space for books 😉
