The other night, the girls had a big bug hunting adventure, and they wanted to share it with you. I don’t know who had more fun: the girls or me. They were utterly fascinated by this new “toy” in our living room. I was thoroughly entertained watching them try to catch the bug. The level of teamwork they displayed was remarkable; I swear I could hear them strategize on how to best approach this hunt!
But why don’t I let them tell you in their own words.
Allegra: Ruby, come over here. You’ve got to see this!
Ruby: What? What’s over there? I’m … Oooh! A bug! A bug!
Allegra: Told you!
Ruby: We should catch it. I bet it would be fun to play with, and Mom would be proud of us. I’m going to pounce on it!
Allegra: Whoa, not so fast, Ruby. We’ve got to come up with a strategy first.
Ruby: What’s strategy?
Allegra: We have to have a plan.
Ruby: Well, why didn’t you say that in the first place! You’re such a show off with your big words. I know what our plan should be: we pounce on the bug!
Allegra: We have to be smart about it. We don’t want it to get away.
Ruby: I’m fast! I can get it on my first pounce!
Allegra: Slow down, Ruby. Let’s figure out what the bug is going to do first.
Ruby: I see it, I see it. I’m going to pounce!
Ruby: Hey! I called dibs!
Allegra: You snooze, you loose, little one!
Ruby: I’m going to chase you off this table, Allegra. This bug was supposed to be mine!
Ingrid: Do I have to come over there?
Allegra and Ruby: Nothing to see here, Mom…
