Thankfully, the grasshopper escaped... maybe not soon enough...

The Boy and the Grasshopper
I had to post about Ethan on Friday! I mowed the lawn during Ethan's nap and I got so excited when I found a grasshopper. I caught it and put it into a container so that Ethan could observe it later (have to have some science time.) Well, I forgot that Ethan is... well... a boy. I felt sorry for the grasshopper. I mean, Ethan couldn't stop picking it up, hitting it with his boot, and pushing it along. But what was most alarming is the fact that the grasshopper wasn't even hopping away. It was like it didn't mind being mutilated by a one year old boy for science.
