Have you ever returned home after a long day at work or school and wondered what exactly was going on in the house while you were away? When I leave the house, my dog is usually peering out the front door watching me leave. When I return, he is usually in the same spot and I sometimes wonder if he stayed there all day waiting for me.

The first time I took them to a theatre to see a nature documentary, I was nervous because they ranged in age from 4 to 9 and I wasn't sure they would sit through it. Not only did they sit through it, they loved it! We have seen many more since then, both at the movies and at home. Now we have a new way to learn about nature and wildlife! Blue Ant Media announced today its premium nature and … [Read more...] about Love Nature? You will love this!
