We started to study the life of John Audubon whose dream was to bring birds and animals to life with pencil and paper. He created the greatest wildlife drawings in the world, which, by the way, we enjoyed at The Huntington in Pasadena, California.

Today Samuel added to his Science Notebook a drawing of the migration of swallows from France to Haiti. As a little boy Audubon lived in Haiti and was fascinated by the birds migrating early one morning.

Jeremiah 8:7 is written at the top to the page: " Storks know when to fly south. So do doves, swifts and thrushes. But my people do not know what I require them to do."

Hmmmm....made me want to read the whole chapter....
