You are as cute as a ladybug You’re also obsessed with ladybugs. During the spring and the early summer months you absolutely love to hunt for them. We have spent hours looking and you can spot them feet away. It’s so amazing to watch your face light up with joy when you see one. You yell at me “Mom, there’s a ladybug, come look!” You are not afraid to let it crawl on your finger, on your shirt, even your head. You love them! You love to set them free!
Whenever we are at Green Acres I have to get you a tub full of ladybugs, three hundred to be exact. You’ll carry them and look at them all the way home to Placerville. When we get home to open them it’s like Christmas all over again. You’re so excited to open them up. You love to watch the thirty or so fly away when we first open them. You’re fascinated by them for hours until every single last one has found a new home in our yard. I will never forget our time spent with the ladybugs and I hope you never do too.
