My Little Entomologists

I've tried really hard to not freak out around bugs so that my girls will grow up to be brave around them.  So far, my self-control has paid off.  Both girls LOVE bugs!

Shelby recently found a lady bug on the playground at school.  She ended up bringing it inside, where Ms. Nicole had all the kids play with it for a little while.

In an attempt to get the perfect Kids-in-the-Texas-bluebonnets picture, the darn butterflies completely ruined any chance I had.  Both girls saw the little critters and were off.

No success...

Roly-Poly bugs and June bugs have also been abundant lately, so we've been bringing them inside and putting them in little "houses".  There have also been a few bugs of unknown names.  I've had to improvise when asked what they were.  "Water bug", "Hoppy bug", and "Lake spider" are just a few.  It's been fun watching their fascination with all things buggy!
