Remember this little guy?

I thought he was a little grasshopper.
But I was wrong.
When my dad was here he was saying, "I don't think that's a grasshopper, I think it's a....hmmm.. I don't remember what they are though."

Well guess what's around now? not the cute little hopper...

it's a katydid! They get their name from the sound they make. I'll have to go outside and listen really close.

I think he was a lot cuter when he was a nymph. OK, and I like the name too...nymph, hehe..

Love that nymph word, too, but remember those pesky Minnesota laws!

Wow, I need to catch up on everyone's blogs. I haven't been on the computer much. Hadn't heard that you were moving......that's exciting! New job? New adventure?

No new job, yet, anyway. :) But we're on the transitional path. We're not sure where we'll be living but we know it took a heck of a long time to sell this house last time, (yeah, ok it didn't sell ;) So we're starting now. You could call it an adventure :D

I know we don't know each other - :) - but might I recommend the lovely cornfields of IL... LOL Unschoolers are a little scarce in these parts!

An adventure - lucky you!
