Bug Out!

Today was the annual Bug Out, where kids get to release thousands of ladybugs to help out the plants at the indoor gardens. This was our third year to participate and we had so much fun!

We were greeted by a giant ladybug. Last year Jack was a little creeped out by this.

This year was the first time Jack didn't dump the ladybugs on the first plant he saw. We actually made it inside about 30 feet before he was ready!

Jack loved the waterfalls.

For some reason we always try the group shot. In any one picture, odds are 2/3 of the kids will be doing one thing and the other 1/3 will be doing something completely different. Or maybe none of them will be doing the same thing. It's a toss up.

Jack enjoyed finding ladybugs on the floor and putting them back on the plants.

It was extremely humid. The kids played for a while in front of the fan to cool off.

There were a few stowaways on my purse when we left!

Jack wiped out on the sidewalk. He was glad to find that Kira had a sympathetic ear.

After the Bug Out, we all went out to lunch and over to the playground.

In our book order last week we got this book on ladybugs. The drawings of the ladybug molting concerned Jack quite a bit.

He even slept in his bug jammies tonight. Of course Bobe had to get in on some snuggling.

Tomorrow is an extremely busy day, so I'm off to do some chores and make a bunch of PBJs!
