Great big beetle
Last night we were out showing some out of town friends our house in progress. As we were getting ready to leave Hendrik noticed a big beetle on the ground by the light the headlights gave off. He of course wanted to touch it and hold it. I didn't know if it would bite him or not so I put aside my squeamishness and let the beetle crawl onto my hand. It didn't bite or try to run/fly away so I let Hendrik hold it. He loved it. He let it crawl on his hand and then he held it between his finger and thumb so it was less likely to fall back down onto the ground. Our friends were fairly freaked out by this and eventually the dad in the family picked up the beetle and tossed it under our boat and said, "Goodnight" to the bug on behalf of his grossed out adult daughters. Kind of funny. The things you'll do for your kids...

What bravery!!! I am impressed, and I am inspired. Perhaps someday I will be brave enough to let a bug crawl in my hand. Doubtful, but a possibility still :)

Thanks Lauren Christine. :) Normally I wouldn't voluntarily do it either but if someone else is afraid I can be a lot braver or if I need to see if it's safe for the kids I can be brave too. Otherwise, I wouldn't be walking around with a giant beetle in my hand for fun! :)
