To celebrate this year's summer solstice we let the kids stay up and catch fire flies (or lightning bugs as I called them growing up). Their light show is mesmerizing. Like a fire works display put on by mother nature.
The little ones ran around the yard with nets (from a board game) and mason jars with lids. Unfortunately, we had little success actually capturing any fire flies, but we sure had fun while we tried!
|Mary...you might need to run!|
|Off on an adventure...|
|Going in for the capture...|
Sorry about the blurry photos. I was playing around with my camera settings and trying to us the manual setting. Clearly, I have some learning to do! :)
It's been a busy week...Vacation Bible School, swim lessons, ballet, etc, AND the two little boys both came down with fevers. A minor viral infection, I 'm sure, but it sort of knocked the wind out of our sails and required a bit of extra TLC from the momma this week. Hope to be back to blogging regularly next week.
