Freebie Friday - Fireflies

Most of my digis lately have centered around my childhood and our camp.  This digi represents what we did every night at camp.  My grandmother would have old Miracle Whip Jars that had "breathe" holes punched in the top for each of the grandkids.  During the day we would catch grasshoppers, caterpillars and frogs.  At night we would catch fireflies (lightening bugs) we would spend hours running around with our jars watching their "butts light up" and giggle.

Living in the south we do not get fireflies, I have been told it is because Mosquito Control has killed them all but if it wasn't for Mosquito Control you would never be able to venture outside.  Last summer we took a road trip to Michigan and our first stop was Kentucky.  We got there at dusk and I saw these flecks of light flying around.  I finally asked are those fire flies?  My husband's aunt said yes.  I took the kids outside and we hunted fireflies for a couple hours.  I was so excited to be able to share that experience (finally) with my children.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and if you can catch a firefly, don't forget to laugh because their butts light up.
