Both boys finished the primary zoology and botany albums this summer. Summertime is a really easy time of year to work on those albums because we are actively engaging with nature everyday. We like to work with what we have, which this summer was RABBITS. Boy, do we have rabbits. Mommy does not want rabbits. We are the only family in our neighborhood without a dog so the rabbits have targeted our yard for reproduction. We dealt with two litters in the nest this summer and one after they left the nest. Who knows how many we missed. The rabbits chew our trees, our hoses, and eat our garden. The rabbits were not welcome to stay.
One morning we awoke to baby rabbits having breakfast all over our yard. They needed to be stopped. We informed the boys that it was "wabbit season." This is a complex process that involved explaining the concept of "hunting seasons," a short talk about opera, Wagner, Looney Tunes, watching the video above, and a LOT of marching around the house singing "kill the wabbit!"...don't judge, the rabbits were relocated rather than killed. It's a socialization thing.
Once he understood the task, Kal-El donned his gear and sat down at the patio table to plan the "hunt."
Baby rabbits are fast and experts at hiding.
We called in the "big guns" (Dad). He's the fastest human at our house.
Uh oh! Anyone seen Gremlins?
This presentation was NOT in our zoology album!
