You can see why, heebie-jeebies! was in running for the title as well. It has been a busy and long few weeks since we got back from my sisters. I have been dealing with a abscessed tooth, and i totally forgot about our trip to the museum of natural history in DC(i think there will be more pictures to come).
My boy is afraid of nothing....he loves bugs. Unfortunately a little more than i can deal with. But he is all boy so i don't know what i expected. When we were in the Orkin bug display there at the museum there was a nice lady with a cart full of bugs that she was happily handing out for little bug loving boys to hold. He started with that very huge Madagascar hissing cockroach...eeew! And then this very large green caterpillar.
The only bug Avery would agree to hold was the same caterpillar....i think because it did not move much. She took one look at that cockroach and said,"NO WAY!!!". That 's my girl! I love the look on Mitchell's face when the bug lady was telling him all about that caterpillar. He looks so intent and serious.
Lastly he got his little hands on this hug grasshopper. He loved every minute of it. I think these bugs were the highlight of the museum for him!
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
