Potato Bug Scam

It's gardening season!  We have our very own potato patch this year, and the potato bugs are just starting to discover it.  The kids are employed as Official Potato Bug Catchers, at a rate of 1 penny per bug.  Doesn't sound like much, but at the height of the season, that's about a candy bar per day!

This morning, Graedon collected all his bugs in a bucket so I could count them.  He watched them for a bit, and a crafty smile came to his face.  "Hey, Mom!  They're mating!  I'm going to let them.  Then, there will be lots and lots of bugs and I'm going to win!"

He's a smart little bug-ger.
