The Buzz

I love finding costumes for the kids at yard sales.  Not only do they love playing dress up, but they also pretend to be whatever costume they have on.  So, less than five minutes after I arrived home with this adorable bumble bee outfit ($3), baby girl was collecting pollen and taking it back to the hive to feed the babies.  She had learned all about bees at a demonstration by beekeepers at the local library, and, of course, she had also seen Bee Movie.  Not one of my favorites, but we did get to talk about the importance of bees, their mysterious disappearance over the past few years, possible reasons for that disappearance, and the repercussions of our actions as residents of Earth.  Whew!  And baby boy was following behind big sister, learning all about bees, too.  Yay for learning through play!
