Gotta love a post nap child that looks at you and says "mom, let's go catch something!". What else can a mom say but "OKAY!". I was then instructed that "we will need nets, some buckets and our sucky things." HA! I knew right away she meant their new bug suckers.
So off we headed down the street to our nearby prairie area and our local stream.
We caught a few little water bugs and nobody fell in so the trip was a success.
BUT the biggest lesson that we learned is that The Bug Sucker is not a good tool to use to catch bugs out of water. Before I could even suggest to Sam to not try to get the bug out of our bucket with the bug sucker she was already making yucky noises and telling me she shallowed something! HA!! She put half the tube down in the bucket and of course when she went to suck up the bug got a mouth full of water. So funny. But she learned a lesson today and now we know to only bring those "suckers" when we are cathing land bugs!
