GB#1 has been with us for a little over two weeks.
We have had many adventures and done lots of fun activities,
but every visit has to end and she will be flying back to her home tomorrow.
While playing on the play set one last time before her visit was over,
GB#1 discovered a cicada emerging from its shell.
We were fascinated by it so we watched its tiny curled wings unfurl.
It wiggled and twitched its legs until they were free of the shell.
Its wings continued to get larger
and one final push was needed to finally be completely out of the shell.
It rested while its wings dried.
Once it was ready the cicada left the shell behind
and ventured off.
Cicada number two was found nearby and was a bit behind the first in emergence
but caught up quickly.
The third cicada was just as impressive as the other two.
I hope this is another adventure that GB#1 remembers for years to come.
Wishing you adventures to remember,
