Little Brothers and Dinosaurs!

Our little 3 year old BB always wants to do whatever his big brother does!

Big brother (age 5) found a huge log at the nature reserve and wouldn’t let it out of his sight once he found it. He lugged that thing everywhere on our walk and all the way down the steep hill.

Then he got Dad to help him drill a hole in it and glue another treasured stick into the hole – giving it a very interesting shape – and behold, it was a DINOSAUR!

So, little brother during his Daddy-time had to get his stick from outside, and drill a hole and glue another stick in –

and there you go…

another DINOSAUR!

Dinosaurs are a major theme in our home as I’m sure they are in most homes with little boys. Its quite a fascinating study and what’s so cool is that it is even more exciting when you discover the dinosaurs in the Bible! I love the way these powerful beasts are described.

the dragon…

Isaiah 27 v 1

the behemoth..

Job 40 and 41

the leviathon ….

Psalm 104 v 24-26

Psalm 74 v 14 “Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, [and] gavest him [to be] meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.”

Did you know that the Brontesaurus didn’t exist.

Many sites just say something like:

Apatosaurus (which was formerly known as Brontosaurus)…

but what they don’t tell you is this

“The type of plant-eating dinosaur with the long, skinny neck and tiny head everyone has been calling a brontosaurusfor years never really existed!

The bones that were put together to construct the brontosaurus actually came from more than one dinosaur. The man who “found” the bones actually came across the body of an apatosaurus, except the head was missing. He used the head of the closest dino he could find, which actually belonged to a camarasaurus, to complete the skeleton. He put the fossils together and named the “new” dino “brontosaurus.”  (from Kidzworld.com)
A wonderful website for information about dinosaurs is here.

Vision Forum has great resources about dinosaurs here and we have loved the zoo, aquarium and museum guides from Answers in Genesis – they are awesome!

STORYTIME

Our 5 yr old BB loves to type stories on the computer. Here is his latest precious story 🙂

He asked me how to spell “focaccia” and he copied the Dinosaur words from his Bible. The rest is all his!

A story about a boy.

There was a boy who had six crocodiles.

His crocodiles went to a river.

The boy had pineapple and apple for breakfast.

The crocodiles had meat.

The boy saw a behemoth and leviathan.

The dinosaurs were in the forest

The leviathan was trying to eat the behemoth.

The behemoth was eating plants.

At lunchtime the boy had focaccia for lunch.

Then he had rest time.

Then he went outside.

At suppertime he had pasta for supper.

Then he went to bed.

“Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. [16] Lo now, his strength [is] in his loins, and his force [is] in the navel of his belly. [17] He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. [18] His bones [are as] strong pieces of brass; his bones [are] like bars of iron.” Job 40 v 15-18
