Leaves, leaves everywhere (and still falling)! This spiral of leaves took a little while to make but my kids really enjoyed helping construct it. In fact, when I ran out of steam they continued to enlarge it by adding more leaves themselves. Great outdoor activity for the fall if you have the time!
My husband noticed this big bug on our downspout while grilling supper last week. This was the first time either of us had seen praying mantis in person. What an exciting find! Of course, the kids and a couple of neighbor friends had to take a peek as well. Upon closer inspection we noticed the mantis was injured. The end feeler portion of one of the middle legs was missing.
