Last night, I was closing the curtains when something rather large flew into my head.

That’s right – a green blur whizzed into my peripheral vision, hit my head, then bounced onto the window.

My instinct told me it was a grasshopper, but upon closer inspection I think it was a Praying Mantis.  How it got into my house is anyone’s guess, but the kids freaked out, worried that he was lost and scared.

Brett and I scooped the little fella into a tupperware and took him out on the deck for a going away party, so he could find his Mom and Dad.
