Ladybugs

My two little ones and I went to the hardware store this morning.  For $8.71 we purchased a medium-sized plastic container filled with ladybugs.

Our mission: release them into our garden before bedtime tonight.

The directions said that ladybugs are less likely to fly away at night.  That they will find food in the plants, make babies, and create a new home where everyone will be happy.

The children and I created some new songs to sing as we release them back into the wild.

Ladybug Ladybug, fly away home.  The garden is blooming and it’s almost all grown.

Ladybug Ladybug, fly away home.  Ring ring ring, there’s someone on the phone.

Ladybug Ladybug, fly away home.  Make a new home by that big gray stone.

Ladybug Ladybug, fly away home.  Stay in our garden, don’t leave us alone.

Ladybug Ladybug, fly away home.  Our plants are yummier than a blueberry scone!
