I've never seen a cicada shed its exoskeleton until this afternoon. So cool (and sort of weird, too.) Eric and I found it after lunch, and then we showed Sarah after school, and Brian after work. Eric's original idea was to pull the poor thing out of its exoskeleton because he was feeling quite impatient about waiting to hold its discarded shell. After Brian took the last picture, he gave it to Eric who then passed to Sarah. She put the exoskeleton in the family treasure jar, including the two legs that broke off after she pulled it from her arm. (She had attached it to herself and was pretending that it was attacking her.)
