Bug Hunt

For those of you who don't know me, I am a bit of a girly girl.  I don't really love being messy or playing with creepy crawlies, but I have a son, whom I love very much.  Last week my wonderful day care provider (no sarcasm there, she really is wonderful and I am thankful to have her) got the kids bug houses and nets.  They had a bug hunt at day care and got to bring everything home at the end of the week.

Well, Xander fell in love with the activity, so we went on a bug hunt of our own.  He was SO funny walking around the back yard with his little net saying "bug bug bug."  He would bend over and inspect the grass.  Of course, he didn't actually catch anything.  That's where Mommy came in.  With my help, we ended up catching a ton of crickets, a couple rollie pollies, a slug, and a moth.  I even added some grass and fruit so he could keep them as pets (outside).  However, he has a thing for opening the bug house and shaking them all out, then asking me to catch more.  Maybe it is more the process than the result...
