This info came to me from my nephew, 5 years old.

The call:
Auntie, you can eat any bug that has six legs
wow bud, neat. How do you know that?
I watched it on Discovery Channel
really, I didn't know you watched that show
Oh ya Auntie, I watch it before Mom gets up

My dilemma; I don't have the knowledge to carry on a discussion about bugs with him!
I search Discovery Channel & couldn't find anything.

Does anyone know what this study is called or where I could find further info?

today he told me that a bee's tongue is called proboscis! this I can handle :)

Hi Angelize56!

This child is amazing and a true credit to his parents
His is being home schooled during the summer because the schools up here tend not to teach any spelling (diplorable! don't want to hurt their self esteem! )

In order to learn English, his parents are sending him to French Emmersion in the fall.

Right now he is harvesting cataplllars and discussing it so much! Today he told me that he is waiting to see if the scar on a caccon is going to be a scar on the wing. fasinating stuff!
He loves the microscope and is making sure his handful of critters is well taken care of from food to beds :)

Huge credit to his parents. Yesterday he was playing t-ball (he is remarkably good at it) and snickered when another child missed. Mommy took him aside for a non-sportsman-like time out, and explained that his skill was a gift from God, that all children had gifts from God and our job in life was to discover what those gifts are for each person and be so happy for the children and their special gifts (she explained a few from excellent spelling, to listening, to sports ...) He was so impressed that God gave him this gift and was such a super sport afterward encouraging the same kid he laughed at earlier.
A "dumb' parent laughed at my sis for this, she said another gift is patience & understanding :)

I hope someday that I will understand all he had learned about bugs :) :)

Angelize56, I have read lots of those Survivor posts. I always hoped that just one of them would do a bit of research before they went (plant roots, bugs, etc ...) :) :)

Hey forward,

Smart nephew you have there (y)

But technically, I think you can eat any bug if it's covered in chocolate :D

Just to be sure, maybe we better ask Donna ;)

Forward: Sounds like a gem of a child! (y) One who will never waste his God given talents! :)

By the way...I'm 50 and never knew a scar on a cocoon could turn into a marking on a butterfly wing! :eek: :D
