Catching Fireflies (Not the fantastic catalog that I drool all over)

 june2010 043

  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.

That looks really fun! I haven't been seeing fireflies in my area for quite sometime.
