We've had a lot of rain lately, and when it rains, the bugs come out of we grabbed our bug catchers and went exploring!
Angie caught a Grasshopper!
Melisa caught a very large Prey Mantis which tried and tried to jump out!
This grasshopper liked watching us as much as we liked watching him!
Eek!  Bugs!
Prey Mantis
What a fun activity!

I Love to Be Beside the Sea

In honor of our vacation to the beaches of California, we painted sea shells!
We collected "baby" shells in a variety of shapes & colors
First, we examined the different shells.  We looked at all of the different shapes & sizes.  The kids chose shells that they'd like to paint.
With a pencil and water colors, they got to work...
Here is Mackenzie's painting
Zoe's painting was of a cave in the ocean and a mermaid, no shells for her!
Look at those little artists go!
