So, if you’re like me, the kids are home and you can only send them out of doors for a little while. What to do with them? Well, games are great, but how about showing them some of God’s cool animals, too?
Both these blog posts were in my inbox practically on top of each other. Mrs. Lee posts so often there’s no way I can do her blog justice, but a good place to start is her article Birds of the Bible: American Bittern.
Another blog I follow isn’t updated nearly as often, but when it is, the info and pictures are wonderful. Works of Creation describes the Mountain Goat and how it can climb in seemingly impossible places. Awesome stuff! (My 8 year old especially recommends this one.)
Now for a little more serious stuff- Dinosaurs!
Not by Chance has a thoughtful and detailed review of the new movie Walking With Dinosaurs. It’s hardly surprising the world is out to persuade our kids, let’s not make it any easier for them. There are some great resources at the end to check out.
Speaking of dinosaurs, did you know they’ve realized a lot of different dinosaurs were still growing when they were buried and fossilized? Up to now, many of them were thought to be separate species because their bones were so different. Oh, yes, if you haven’t signed up for Creation Research’s (the Aussie group with John MacKay) Enewsletter, now’s a great chance!
Not only were the dinosaurs still growing, bits of them are still preserved inside the fossils to this day. I’ve written about this earlier, have a big list in my book manuscript, and the Institute for Creation Research has called these findings the “Best Creation News of 2013“.
