My SIL (sister-in-law) Pauline is a hoot.
I wish I could bring her from Hawaii to the Owl Lab!
We came upon it while we were snorkeling and hovered over it for about 10 minutes and then it came up for air right in front of us! What an awesome experience! We could have touched it. It is against state law to touch them, chase them, or harass them in any way. But me being a law abiding citizen, I said, "no I will not touch the Honu". Pauline told me to leave the Honu Alone! Mahalo nui loa!
Unfortunately, I lost the SD card in my GoPro and couldn't photograph it. Our son Nathan took this film a few days ago of a Honu he saw while he was snorkeling off the island of Molokini.
This Honu sighting was definitely the highlight of our trip so far!
(although last night we found a remote, dark spot, to see the Milky Way and it was quite visible.)

We did find a few Petoskey stones near Travers City. That was fun (but cold).

There is a free Teachable app I didn't even know about. With this free app on your phone your child can be learning about science and nature even when you are not at home.
Students who enroll in this course will also get to join me and a Master Gardener at Roper Mountain Science Center to view the butterfly garden. We will teach you what plants to grow in your yard that will attract the most butterflies.
There are plenty of assessment tools and activities for children in P
rimary, Elementary, and Middle School for those who want to use this course as a science curriculum.
On top of all of this, students enrolled in the course will get to join me on a monthly live Zoom call from May until September. On our next call I'm going to highlight a friend of mine who had a certified Monarch habitat in her yard in California. She taught a biblical course using monarchs to illustrate her lessons. You will really enjoy this conversation!
