The children have been on the hunt for bugs in our backyard. For some reason this year we have had a lot of praying mantis in our landscaping. Matt found two, Ryan found one, and I found another two when I was working in the yard. We let them go each time so we may have found the same one several times. Matt has improvised and made a few "bug" containers for the kids. Jacob and Chloe loved looking at the bugs but Minah wasn't too thrilled. She liked to look at it from a distance but didn't want it too close!
