More Outside Play and a Temporary Pet

The kids have been continuing to enjoy the nice bits of weather and have also decided on another temporary pet, a grasshopper that we found while raking leaves.

His name is Grassy.



Updated to add: We let Grassy go a few days later into a pile of brush on the driveway. Apparently he told my daughter that he would be safe there for the winter.



  1. I think your grasshopper was actually a katydid. I just found this out today from another blog, we’ve caught numerous grasshoppers that were probably katydids as well. They look almost the same, only grasshoppers have short stubby antenna and katydids have long ones.
