I don't think I could handle a bug crawling on my nose.

These two boys are just fascinated by bugs! About 5 or 6 times a day, they come to the door to let me "see" what they caught! (I don't let them bring anything into the house!) Today's catches were a slug, a dragonfly, worms, and potato bugs. And they were only outside in the yard for about 2 hours, since it has been warm out.

At this point in his life, if I had to list Maynard's Top Five list of things he loves, they would be (in no particular order):

Food. Actually, this is probably always going to be #1.



His wiener. (Is it this way for all boys?)

Anything in the Animal Kingdom, especially BUGS.

Today, he found this:

He was fascinated for quite some time, until he announced that he wanted to feed it to our turtle, John Denver.


Knock, Knock...

Is this thing on?

I haven't blogged in quite some time. I have been spending most of my time with the kids and Randy, now that he is has a job locally. I have enjoyed having him home, and the boys enjoy having another person to express how hungry they are!

I swear those two eat more than anyone I know! And they are never "FULL"!

The boys are both getting big, and now that it is warm, they both spend a majority of their time outside. Willard is all about reptiles and amphibians. He was very sad when Slim died. He probably had a lung infection. He goes looking for garter snakes at any opportunity. Maynard has learned how to ride his bike without training wheels, but he always pedals for a little while, throws his bike down, and looks at bugs.

We enjoyed our trip to Minnesota for Memorial Day weekend. Along with a wedding and Willard's 7th Birthday over the weekend, there was a big potluck on Monday with hoards of children!

Here is a Caterpillar that the kids were looking at during the potluck:
