Last year at this time, monkey’s Kindie teacher gave her a bug catcher at school and let her bring home a ladybug. A few days later, that ladybug laid eggs inside of the bug catcher.

That teachers simple act of kindness will stay with Monkey and our family forever. She fueled Monkey’s love for ladybugs, and I don’t see that changing any time soon.

She even says she’s going to be a entomologist (aka a bug scientist to us regular folk).

Wouldn’t that be something?

Teachers may never know the effect they have on their students, but if Monkey goes through with it, I’ll be sure to share this blog post with her Kindie teacher someday!
