a grasshopper visit

It was such a nice fall afternoon yesterday we moved our school out on to the front porch.While we where working, along came a grasshopper he started out on my candle holder and then Grace persuaded him to climb on her thumb. He was pretty content and seemed to not mind. I know they can pack quite the bite when agitated, but he was pretty docile.

He seems to be checking over Grace's math assignment and giving her a few pointers. He would not move off her finger which was a bit funny.

He did hop off on his own, after he was done visiting with us. He was quite an exciting quest to have visit us yesterday.

If only they didn't help themselves so much to all things in my garden, I could enjoy them more...of course, they do have alot of other insect friends causing chaos too. Now the helpful lady bugs are more up my alley. Do you have any of those?

blessings and hugs,
