A must-see: drop in on Lapaz Farm Home Learning and marvel at Theresa's magical fairy unit. There have been numerous fairy sightings, and her children have put together a beautiful notebook, enchanting fairy houses, and art projects such as splatter fairies (I love these) and fairy dust pictures. I'm inspired!
By the way, because I love collective nouns, I made up "flutter" for a group of fairies. Then I googled to see if there is an official collective for fairies and found this list, which refers to a number of fairies as "a herd." A herd? I know that fairies can be mischievous and ornery and sometimes unruly, but herd-like? Surely their diminutive stature alone qualifies them for a collective noun more delicate than "herd." Just my opinion, but I think that possibly a thicket of idiots decided on "herd of fairies."
