The summer is drawing to an end. One of the noises we will really miss this winter is the song of the cicadas. The children had so much fun collecting the empty shells last week. Each year they like to collect them and see who finds the most. We collected them off of tree bark, window frames, the grape arbor, the play set.
We decided they looked good on our shirts. How many could we pin to the shirt and keep on while running around the yard? Was it 16 bugs?
Then we caught a ” live one” after hatching. It gave us a bit of a fright…
Bugs are amazing creatures. Who can deny it? See and hear you next year, little cicada!
