We had great fun catching fireflies (lightening bugs) and learning about them. I can't believe how good my daughter is at catching them!
Nothing says childhood summers like catching fireflies.
Having a child is amazing because it gives adults an excuse to catch fireflies and not feel silly about it.
We spent quite a bit of time observing them closely.
My daughter took this picture and it is one of my favorites. Is it a close up of the tail or something else?
We read a our nighttime story with the fireflies close. I told my daughter that if you let the fireflies go at the end of the night then the firefly fairy will reward you with a coin. She was happy to let them go and I’m excited that I came up with an excuse to pretend a fairy visited her without having to wait for a tooth to fall out.
