Back at the end of summer, freshly back from exotic lands where giant bugs typically hang out, I acquired my own exotic little insects.
Stick bugs. Five of them. There was a hatching at Pol's house you see.
They were just tiny back then, so this blog post is mostly for Pol's benefit. See how nicely your bugs are growing up, my friend?
Three of them (Sticky,Twiggy, and Lucy) are presently living at the preschool (sort of an insect boot camp where survival skills are quickly learned). They are handled quite a lot by my pack of four-year-olds who love the way Lucy and her sisters can walk up shirts.
I am pleased to see it is the girls who have taken the biggest interest in bug-handling. Girls after my own heart. :)
My other two stick-bugs, Rosy and Princess (I had help naming them), live at home in relative comfort and ease, thanking their lucky bug stars that they weren't the ones going on extended vacation with preschoolers.
