A Little Beauty
Mommy had to catch this katydid this morning while Mark and Grace ran for cover. It was on the siding of the house and just waiting for us to put him in our bug jar.
Look at those big eyes. It is also the best insect to identify as insect's body parts. You could very clearly see the head, thorax and abdomen on the underside of this kaydid. We are going to draw and label the parts before we let him go.
Look down from heaven above and touch this special child with love, protect and guide this little one till each and every day is done: remind us often that it's true: this little life is a gift from you. A miracle You've send out way! Lord, bless this little child today.
Mother Theresa pray for us!
"How can there be too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers."
