I now know and have come to terms with that i will forever be plagued with bugs. Not just because of my son, the main culprit, but because of homsechool and admittedly sometimes they are just plain cool. Some more than others. He was gifted with a worm nursery way back at his last birthday and the eggs just finally cam in the mail....eggs, eeeewww gross! I know. We are waiting for them to hatch. Yuck! And then the boys will be responsible for transfering them to the dirt in the greenhouse side of the worm house. Ugh!!
It has a little magnifying lens where Mitch can watch for newly hatched wormy things. Yuck, again! But he is thrilled, that is what matters, right? At least that is what i keep telling myself.
Now, this i thought was pretty cool. This dragonfly was huge, about 3-4 inches long and the wings were even wider.. I am not sure what kind of dragonfly it is. I have never seen any around here that were any color other than blue. I love how you can see his huge eyes in this picture. Mitchell was there watching him too, just dying to touch it. I did not let him because i was sure that was to be its demise. The poor thing just wanted some shelter from the wind. There have been some great bug examples here that have lent some weight to our previous school science lessons. It is good to hear the kids recall things they learned as they tell their new little friends something about their discovery du jour.
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.
