We go to speech therapy every Tuesday in a town that is about 25 miles from where we live. We drive through "the bottom" to get there (it's a big short cut) and it's just a road through a bunch of soybean fields and farm land. Several weeks ago I started noticing these huge, furry caterpillars crossing the road as we drive through. I didn't know what they were at first, and I was a little nervous/intrigued/flabbergasted that they might be big spiders (I'm deathly afraid, but kind of like looking from a distance), so one day I just stopped and got out and looked, and they were just cute, huge, soybean-fed caterpillars. I've been meaning to bring Levi and his bug box down there one day and "catch" some, and yesterday was that day.
With the new addition of a lot of new, fun back yard toys, and now our new pet caterpillars, our back yard is like a little boy wonderland. It's fun being a boy-mom.
