Bugs, Snakes and Worms {oh My!}

My children have some brave personalities!  As a child, I am certain that I was running for the hills at the sight of a bug, worm or snake…… but not these lil’ Johanson’s!

The good thing for these kids  is they are learning about nature and all the creatures that inhabit the earth in their school.  We also live by a greenbelt and you never know what you are going to find!  A fellow blogger was sharing some info about cicadas and I’m not gonna lie, it gives me the ultimate hebbie geebies!

The good news appears to be that these cicadas are expected in other parts of the USA and not as close to home {insert sigh of major relief}.  I can barely handle the sound of crickets at night and cicadas are even louder.  This site had some interesting information that I thought was worth sharing…. especially if you are an adventurous soul and looking for new ways to enjoy the mass invasion.

I guess if you can’t beat em’, join them! Stay educated and if you get a wild hair—eat em! agh!

There's a ton of buzz about cicadas right now, thankfully not where I live! There are cicada parties and yes, bbqs. Bleck! I'm not a fan of bugs, esp. bigger, louder bugs. I'll take the small ones we have in Utah instead!

So car washes are scary but bugs they don't mind? Lol, crazy kids! :-) I don't get too girlie about many things, but creepy crawlers and spiders have me squealing like a little girl and running! Yikes!
