|Cowboy, Bug Explorer Extraordinaire.|
|Thanks, Bubba! I love my new bug habitat and magnifying glass. They go so well with my Safari Vest from Nanny and Poppy.|
I also got a cool magnifying glass, a bug-catching net, and a bug collecting case. I have everything I need to be an Expert Bug Explorer.
I think I'll begin exploring right here at home...I wonder what sort of bugs I can find around here?
|I found some bugs, Nanny, but they are plastic. Where do you suppose the real ones are?|
|I think you will find some under the pear tree eating fallen fruit. It seems the ants and bees like pears a lot, just like little boys do.|
|I will catch some of the ants and add them to my bug habitat.|
|Look what else likes the pears! You'd better leave that one flying free, Cowboy. It's too beautiful to put in a cage.|
Hey, Mommy! Look at the creepy spider I found. Can I catch it and put it in my habitat?
No way, Cowboy! You leave that one outside. You know I don't like spiders. Eeeyeuw!
|Look what else I found, Daddy! A baby praying mantis. I will add it to my habitat. I can name it Bob.|
|I want to be a Bug Explorer, too, says Baby Boo (who is walking now!). I may not have an awesome safari vest like my big brother, but my outfit has bugs on it...and a net like his!|
|What? More presents? Wow! |
It's a Bug Podz set. Neato. Uh, what are Bug Podz?
|Guess what?! We found a Wooly Bear caterpillar today, too. We looked it up on the internet and found out they turn into Isabella Tiger moths. Isn't that neat? I love all of my new buggy stuff.|
Sure thing, my brave explorer, sweetie-pie. We all had such a fun time sharing this special birthday with you, appreciating the endless variety of God's extraordinary natural world. We saw so many fascinating things on our Bug Hunt, and I look forward to all of us having many more together in days to come. God bless you this year and always, our dear Cowboy. We love you.
