Cicada Party!

At the bus stop Monday morning, we shared that the cicadas had come out in full force in our yard. The kids went to school and we went about our day. At the end of the school day, the bus dropped the kids off on the corner of our street just as it does every day, and all of a sudden I started to hear people talking, and it sounded like they were right outside the front door. When I opened the door, this is what I found! There was a party in our front yard. The kids were fascinated with them and I think really the adults were too. Seems like so far, we are the house with the most of these gross bugs hatching on our street. Oh Joy! It is kinda neat to watch them come out of their shell on the tree, but not so much when they fly at you!!! The last picture here is one John apparently got of me while the party was going on, and he likes to call that my "Oh please" look.
