…young grasshopper

A grasshopper had been on our screen all day long.  Wilson came home from school and set out to investigate it.  He carefully moved him to a napkin and then carried him to the table to look him over.  The kids stared and stared at him to decide if he looked scary.  They decided he wasn’t so they all took turns “petting” him.  Wyatt said he was “soft”, haha.  They watched him a bit longer before setting him free in, where else, the grass.  They made sure to give him some food of leaves and more grass.  A few hours later they checked and were surprised to see he was gone.  What a fascinating afternoon!
