Fairy Girl with a Pill Bug (so perfect)

Hanging out in our beautiful fairy-like yard with our little fairy princess Liesl, digging for worms and bugs. Liesl can now tell the difference between millipedes and centipedes (I can't but she can!).

So, here she is once again with a bug in the bucket. This bug was particularly big and scary (in my opinion) Liesl dug this giant beetle up and promptly stuck it in my face saying "Look Mom!"enthusiastically. Now the bug was a little to close to my face and I proceeded to scream (it was really big) I scared Liesl and she started crying! I felt so bad. She loves bugs so much. So I then tried really hard to explain that I was just suprised and that it was indeed a lovely bug. We kept it in the jar all day just admiring it's largeness and creepiness and loveliness.

This photo is in here for Alicia and Heather. I don't know which one of you bought this interesting skirt, but in the bins of beautiful clothing that we have been handed down, this is the one item that she imediately needed to wear. She danced around all afternoon in this ensemble.

For the record - that was a mother-in-law purchase.

Oh, I hope Cal doesn't love bugs that much! I'm crossing my fingers!
