Cicada Season

"Come look, Mama! We decorated every single fence post with cicadas."
And so they did.

See?

(This is really the cicada casing. When the cicada emerges from the casing it is green and has wings. Here's a great cicada website if you would like to know more. And there's always Wikipedia.)

They made friends with the cicadas. How cool. I'm not sure how'd my son react when he sees one. He sure loves ladybugs though.

Creativity knows no boundaries!

So that's a cicada? Somehow I thought they were more of a long, slender praying mantis-looking thing.

Nice yard decorations..who needs yard gnomes? Maybe today they'll decide to show you their love by making a cicado necklace, or put some in a toilet paper tube and make a "cicada shaker. "

This one especially cracked me up! We will have to go out looking for these now-I sure hear them so I know they are out there! The girls would get a kick out of it and we are studying insects right now!
Much love,
Ang
PS-I will prob email you soon for some homeschool encouragement! I am struggling through! But it is all emotions and not truth.

Faith said...

LOL, love your little entomologists! (They would looove our house! ;))
