Yesterday was the first day of public school. We celebrated by going to the Springs Preserve. Luke had caught a tarantula hawk wasp, a hornet, and some squash bugs that he wanted to trade in. With all of the points he received, he got some more cicada shells and this beautiful long horn beetle. The first in his new insect collection case!
Like always, the Nature Exchange was a great experience. The woman there spent a long time chatting with Luke about insects. I think he really loves discussing insects with someone who "gets it" instead of me who can only FAKE "getting it."
This picture is from the night before. These curlers stayed in for an hour...tops.
