Green Things

Yesterday we had a surprise and very large visitor at our backdoor. In fact he hung around all day long. Isn't he amazing! I admit i was a little scared to get too close when i was taking the picture because i knew it could jump/fly...but for the most part he was pretty mellow and let us check him out all day long. Look how big he is compared to Mitchell's little hand!! We think it is a katydid. Am i right?
And for good measure here is a silly Avery shot. She wanted me to put it on the blog. Our very nice neighbor made a batch of homemade playdough, and when he was done with it he gave it to my kiddo's. They love it and sit and use it for a very long time when i am brave enough to have it out. i hate playdough mess. Avery made a pizza and was pretending to eat a slice. Goofy girl!!!

Yikes! I know I've seen one before here at home...in the bug cage! LOL But I'm clueless to what it is. Too bad my bug experts are either not here, or are busy on break from schoolwork! Just reveiwed part of a unit on African conflicts...in the 1990's. Scary stuff and another reason to know who are neighbors truly are and to be a person of mercy! Blessings and have a slice of pizza for me! :o)

I think you're right about him being a katydid.

Love that Avery face!
