Another school year has honest to goodness to flown by. The kids are done school tomorrow and summer fun is on. I can't believe how big they are all getting. My oldest is starting junior high! There is a lot to be done around here before we head up to the Cape and I am trying to formulate exactly "when" our trip will begin.
Lucky for me, we have a deciding factor. These...................(actual pic taken by my dad)
This humongous bug is a cicada. I know nothing about them except they emerge from underground every 17 years, they are so loud and sound like an alien spaceship is landing, they are harmless but creepier than creepy in appearance and they are in FULL SWING at the Cape. I love science and all but I think I'll stick to seeing these in pictures. Call me when they are dormant again and we'll be up - Ms. C FREAKS at a housefly, can you imagine her reaction to one of these? I feel itchy now xo, Brie

It's interesting but I'll admire them from far, far, far away
PS here is the sound, enjoy!
