A few days ago we were hanging out in the living room. The boys were doing their usual peer out the window and exclaim about things going on outside. Suddenly Harry got excited and tried to hand my husband something small and black. Harry has somehow caught a fly. We were quite shocked but thought it was a fluke, after all flies are naturally speedy creatures that always seem to evade the quickest of people.
A few days later I decided to see if it was a fluke. I asked Harry to get a fly. We some how never seem to have a house entirely free of flies thanks to slow children that like to linger in open doors, so I thought maybe a fly hunting Harry could help correct a the problem. I didn't really think he could repeat the performance but much to my surprise he managed to yet again corner one by the window and catch it.
The boys, being the boys that they are love catching bugs. I have to watch them carefully to make sure that they don't pick up anything harmful. I also have to watch them to make sure that harmless beneficial bugs to not end up getting squished. Pill bugs are a particular favorite and are also just as likely to get squished if I am not quick enough to stop it. I am sure that bugs are just the beginning.
