spider hunting? I hadn't until Saturday night. Our friend, Carson, wanted to take the kids spider hunting and even bought them their very own LED flashlights for the big event. All you do is go outside to a grassy area, hold the light next to the side of your head at eye level and shine it along the ground (I thought crouching down and shining the light produced the most eye shine from the spiders)... it took some time getting used to looking for "eye shine" and hold the light right, but soon we were seeing lots and lots of spider eyes shining (reflecting back) at us. Now, I have a very strong aversion to spiders, but I found this to be a lot of fun. You can even spot the spider eye shine and slowly walk up to it and determine what kind of spider it is. And kill it so it doesn't have a chance to get in your house or crawl on your shoe. (kidding, sort of, not really.)
Sunday was church, car stuff and relaxing. We tried to watch the closing ceremonies of the Olympics since we missed the opening ceremonies... I wish we wouldn't have. Depressing. And now the TV is back on lock down except for football, Thomas the Train and Wild Kratts.
Right now I am googling how to cut my hair (I probably won't be daring and attempt), hoping Rose falls asleep soon and figuring out supper. Multitasking!
