BUGZ

Bugz-3

The most adorable 8-year-old praying mantis ever...grandson Abram at his 2nd grade school musical "Bugz"...

...with one of his army-ant buddies before the performance.

I loved his neon green costume...easy to pick out!

 

Bugz-9

I don't know any of these other second-graders, but they were SO CUTE I just kept taking photos anyway! As a former second-grade teacher, I'm a sucker for children's programs.

The honeybees were precious...

Praying mantis...it's your turn to speak!

Abram had his part perfectly memorized and recited it flawlessly.

Well done!

I sat there thinking that in just 10 years, we'll be watching them walk across this stage to get their diplomas...

Kudos to this amazing music teacher! I don't know her, but I was very impressed with the performance. Takes a LOT of patience and work to corral and herd 120 second-graders to do anything!

Family photos after the show was finished...

Daniel wasn't being cooperative with the photo shoot. Imagine that!


Bugz-27

Kyler and Kara never dreamed they'd be proud parents of a praying mantis.

Abram with his Stink Bug buddy...

 

Bugz-31

Off to Freddy's to celebrate with ice cream!

Oh...and I forgot to mention...Abram lost a tooth right before they left for the musical. But it didn't hinder him...just a day in the life of a praying mantis second-grade boy.

Daniel was VERY COOPERATIVE about the ice cream stop...

A wonderful fun evening with a bunch of adorable...

...BUGZ.
