The boys called me from outside. "Mom, a tree-bug, a tree-bug!" They had found the a creature that should have been in a monster movie in their own back yard. They were not playing video games or watching DVDs. Sean and Levi were just hanging outside on a very brisk fall day. The month had been filled with visions of Halloween and trick-or-treating. But, right then, they were only concerned with what that insect would look like in the spring. "Mom, will he still be alive? Will she have babies?" All very good questions... It was fun to watch them aim my camera, to capture the little guy on film. I know they will never remember this day, but I will. I will think about their curious faces and the wonderment in their eyes at nature, the season, and the moment.
