The other day we went to the park to play with some friends. The kids were playing hide and seek with a green container (great camouflage) and a bright yellow softball.Â It was fun watching them enjoy the game!
I found a neat surprise while we were out.Â I discovered two mantis egg cases (called an ootheca)!Â I had never seen one until the kids were given one last winter to take care of.Â So for me to find two in one day is exciting. I know where they are at the park, so will have fun watching them occasionally.
Now the challenge is to find one in our own yard!
