This week we had quite a few visitors, some pleasant and some not so pleasant…and of course the kids had alot to say about them!
First off, the stars of the week were Bob and Larry. When I showed the kids the tomatoes and cucumbers that had grown in the garden, the little boys yelled out “may-tos” and “cumers” while the older three referred to them as “Bob” and “Larry” from the Veggie Tales. Of course you know I had to go inside and stick some googly eyes on them so that they would really look like Bob and Larry! While picking some beans from our garden, we found this cute little frog. The kids were very adamant about “Froggy” needing some water to swim in…since he probably came from our neighbors pond. I tried to convince them that we just needed to release him, but they proceeded to fill up the container with water and dirt. I was too busy trying to save the poor frog from my kids that I didn’t get to take a pic of the “home” they were created for him!
Next up, we found this on our sunflowers. I told the kids to come look at the grasshopper. KJ took a look at it and said, “Mommy, that is not a grasshopper. It is a praying mantis. I can tell because it has things on the side of its head kind of like my puff balls.” (She was obviously referring to her hairstyle! If you look closely, you can see the “things” she was referring to!)
