We have been preparing for a cicada invasion. As much as one can prepare for such a thing. Will likes worms, ladybugs, roly polys... But things that fly? Not so much. I fear he may lose his mind when the cicadas emerge and outnumber us 600 to 1.
I started to talk with Will about all the bugs he would soon see. I showed him pictures online and we watched short news clips.
Then, this morning, Will saw something crawling in the backyard. He and Mike quickly captured it in a container and brought it inside to show me. Will excitedly called family to tell them, "I found a 'cada!"
Amelia was a bit braver than her big brother. Someday I think she will be thoroughly grossed out by these pictures.
