    Nothing in Aurora yet either. And we just had a Cicada Picnic with homeschooling friends in honor of the emergence date. Soon, though, soon…

    I also live in Villa Park. Ive been taking my son outside to check them out all day.. we caught one in his big box, and we cant seem to stop looking at it. They are aldults now, and they are so creepy looking! I plan on taking pics when my little one os taking his nap. I think I will post them on here later!
