The Project Son's science quest, insect nest finds; school's best project. Saves in his room. Wakes to doom when with gloom, he cries. Hundreds now crawl. Every wall sports hatched small mantes.

Yes, Jan, but it wasn't so funny when it really happened! Our son was about 10 years old at the time! Thanks for your visit and support! Hugs, Sandra
