Anyone Know this Dude?

We've looked through our bug identification guide and perused the internet, but can't find this beetle's name.  Anyone know anything about it?

From your picture, I recognized your bug as what they call a "true bug" and then I found a stink bug, which was brown but had the same body as yours. So I looked up green stink bug. :)

Here's more info on a brown stink bug:

YES!! You win a prize!!! Or at least, our undying gratitude.

The green stink bug it is. Expect enthusiastic lap books to follow!

I guess we aren't very scary as we haven't experienced any stinking yet.
