Mommy the Bug Hunter
Ok. So I have to confess this:
Of late, I have been the one eagerly looking out for the bugs, and not so much the boys.
It's probably that they have moved on from that phase and it's only off and on that they'll want to go bug hunting at our back lane. But I spotted some chrysalis and decided to pick a few to wait to see newly formed ladybugs and set them free.
Today, Micah and I actually went and looked at the bittergourd creeper on the fence and started pointing out to each other the ones we spotted that are still on the leaf. In total I counted there were actually about 15 chrysalis. And we did not even get to look at the part of the creeper that had grown into our neighbour's garden! Delightful!
It's the season for the pretty spotty bugs again. :)
p/s- Would probably let Micah take this jar to school on Tuesday if they have not come out from their cocoon by then. That will be thrilling for the kids!
