Looking for ladybugs.

Halle is passionate about bug catching. She loves nothing more than to capture a ladybug and keep it in a jar for a few days. She's pretty nice about letting to poor bug go back to it's home after a while too. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago she brought home a book order from school that had a series of books about the life cycles of several different things, i.e. horses, sunflowers, ladybugs, etc. So we HAD to buy them. Today I looked out the window and this is what I saw:

She and Carter had the ladybug book open and were digging through the garden plot trying to find a ladybug in any stage of it's life cycle. They were looking under leaves and through the dirt for ladybug eggs, larvae, pupa, and ladybugs themselves. Alas, they came out empty handed, but I thought it was pretty cute and clever!
