How to Charm Me

This week we’ve observed a family of black beetles that have taken up residence in our yard. They are pretty dramatic looking, as bugs go, and they always catch Will’s attention from car to door.

Today there was a pair of them coupled in the driveway, doing what I imagine it looks like when black beetles mate with vigor and enthusiasm.

Will studies them closely at them for a minute and then says, “Look Mom—they’re friends!”
