Meet my friend, Centipede

Yes you read that right. Jack told me this morning that the centipede he found on the ground is his friend. He saved it from some ants trying to take it away. He even got Ally into saving it and watching it closely. Oh boy does he loves bugs. He and some of the kids in the neighborhood decided to use the butterfly holder as a bug holder since butterfly season is over.
So, here we sit with a butterfly holder that has ants, roly poly bugs, worms, a white butterfly (maybe a moth), crickets, grasshopper and ladybugs. And of course then Chad found a frog and gave it to Jack so he put that in there too for a short time. Meg was not too interested in all of this bug stuff. But, Ally walked around with a worm in her hand and surprisingly did not squish it.
In these pictures the little spec on the ground that Jack and Ally are looking at is the centipede. Too funny! Ally kept even touching this bug.
And of course god forbid we not take pictures of the roly poly bug that Jack walked around with.
