Janet - a cricket

Several weeks ago, while walking into town, Bug found a water bottle in the grass and discovered a cricket inside of it. We found a cap for it, and carried it with us while we ran our errands for the day (this included a stop at the library for cricket books). Bug named the cricket "Chester" (from A Cricket in Times Square) but after getting home and looking through the cricket books, we had to rename HER. This is Janet.

Sadly, Janet died last week. Bug insisted on a burial and used a permanent marker to make a gravestone. Janet is buried behind our garage.
Bug says "She was a very nice cricket and I loved her a lot."

Fun with leaves

While at cousin B's house, B & Bug played in a leaf pile.
I love this photo.
Dead boy.
B's mom....Aunt P., decided to get in on the fun.

How about a nice action shot?

Cousin B's birthday

Bug's cousin, B, just turned 13. We gave him a "scratch and sniff" card that kept him occupied for a while.

Now's he's deciding which friends to try to use it on.
WOooHOOooo!!!! Kleenex!!! kleenex. Just money.

Getting ready to blow out the candles.

Bug's new jacket

I've been knitting and knitting and knitting.....'s even too big for me.

Ahh...much better.
I just need to get clasps for it and it will be done.

After helping out at the candy store one afternoon, Bug found out that she had earned a caramel apple...her first. She loved it.

We took this photo last Friday for one of Bug's little friends. E is almost 2 and runs around saying her name. His mom says he now carries the photo around.

Here she is less than a week later. Quite a different smile, wouldn't you say?

Rocks & Minerals

Some friends came by recently and gave Bug a private rock & mineral lesson. She got to see many interesting things and got to keep quite a few pieces. She was quite excited, as you can see here:

Bug was quite interested in what Michael & Jeannie had to say. Thanks, guys!

Apparently geodes make her laugh...

Recent photos...

The three of us took a little hike one day. Bug liked this tree.

Now that Bug can read "in her head", she's always got a book handy. Here she is, sprawled on the couch enjoying Calvin & Hobbes. Like her new tie dyed shirt & socks? The felted hat is one that I just made.
Yes, she still creates odd costumes. She found this neck pillow and decided that if she wore it this way she would look like a sarcophagus. (we're studying ancient Egypt right now)

Bug told me that this is "Springman". She also pointed out that she used to draw him a long time ago.
