In Love with Bugs

I thought only boys loved bugs. I thought I was safe having a little girl.

But last night, Elly and I spent several minutes on our hands and knees watching a cricket and then a grasshopper hop across the grass. I’m sure the neighbors thought we were nuts.

Elly’s excitement when she found a bug

Once the sun started to set, Elly chased all the fireflies around. She even caught two on a leaf!

At least she doesn’t try to make me touch them.

No, I take that back. Elly instructed me to touch a firefly last night. Thankfully, the firefly wasn’t anymore keen on that proposition than I was and flew away.
