Warm sunny weather late in the year means lots and lots and LOTS of boxelder bugs on our house and even a few in our house (though not nearly as many as I remember being at my grandparents' house on the farm when I was little). Given the abundance, Elise has taken notice and shows absolutely no fear. In fact, yesterday evening she was ecstatic about the one crawling all over her arm. I have to admit that I'm thankful for the two bug-loving children in our house (Wesley isn't quite as keen as the other two) because it means I don't have to touch the bugs.
Because we see them a lot, we also talk about them a lot. Including Elise, who has an absolutely adorable way of talking about the ugly black and orange creepy crawlies. (The quality isn't great since I took this video with my iPhone and the sun was in the background, but you'll get the idea). Enjoy.
