Fireflies

FireflyNightCover

Recently, neighbors invited us over for dinner. There were 4 kindergarteners, 2 four-year-olds and a ten-year-old. Thank goodness for the ten-year-old.

The girls were dressed in princess gowns. It was time to eat. Hamburgers and princess dress up clothes do not go well together. Luckily, the ten year old was their King. He decreed, “Change back into your clothes to eat.” They did! No arguments, no buts, nothing . . . I need to adopt that king.

As the evening was drawing to an end, fireflies arrived. I had forgotten how much fun it is to chase fireflies. ML and I chased them all the way home.

We received a new book at the library today. It’s a Firefly Night by Dianne Ochiltree. Betsy Snyder’s illustrations evoke the magic of firefly catching. ML is going to love it.
