. . . lightning bugs in a jar? This is little man and little girl in the yard once again finding (torturing) the crawling creatures they happen upon. They caught two "lighting bugs" (according to little man) and promptly named them Sunny and Midnight. Little girl asked if they had a battery in them to light them up. It is a good question. . .
You may wonder why I post so much about my kids and bugs on a site dedicated to eradicating paper and plastic bags. Well, I am a little paranoid about my kids suffering from Nature Deficit Disorder as we live in a large city. I have the book, Last Child in the Woods that I found about a year ago. Ever since I have been encouraging my kids to spend as much time outside as possible. I want them to appreciate and fight for this gorgeous planet. If we don't instill this environmental awareness now. . . ok, enough preaching, have a great day! Teresa
