Cricket Weather

It's been a long weekend but we learned something very amusing today. Did you know that if you count the number of chirps that a cricket makes in a period of 15 seconds, and add 40 to it, you'll get the degrees in Farenheit that it currently is?
Yep.....it's a fact - or so it says. I think I might try that out. I have to find a cricket first. If anyone has one that's willing to play please let me know. Mom says she thinks the weather people oughta get some. Maybe they'll be more accurate this summer. Harrooooo!

I think we'll just eat them. Mommy took Shiloh to a pic-nik last night and he was very interested in the fireflies zoomin round. He didn't eat any tho. Ice cream is better!

We have lots of crickets. Last summer we would have some come in the house then mom would make dad put them outside because they would keep her awake.
