Noah's Grasshopper & The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Noah is the most boyish boy I know. Give him some mud, worms, rollie-pollies, whatever - when I think of boy, I think of Noah! They plowed the corn field behind us not too long ago and really stirred up the bugs. I think every grasshopper hiding in the corn came to our backyard. When I say grasshoppers, I mean GIANT locusts. Noah isn't scared of them in the least. He picks them right up and proudly brings them to me. He also noticed some horn worms on our tomato plants. What is a horrible pest destroying my tomato plants, to him is the very hungry caterpillar. After we took pics, we spent the afternoon reading the book by Eric Caryl. Life is always an adventure in our backyard!
