Do you remember catching fireflies when you were a kid? That was one of my favorite summertime things to do. Last night my kids and I went out to catch them. Dressed in pajamas and equipped with a net, baseball hat, and jar, we ran around the yard chasing the little flying light bulbs.

The kids squealed with delight every time they caught one. When we were finished, we had ten little bugs in our jar, all flickering that familiar yellow glow.

Of course they wanted to keep them, but the daddy insisted that they let them go. Disappointed, they released them into the night sky.

"Bye bye little fireflies, " they said. "See you next time!"
