Nasty!!

Kev and I saw this little beauty the other night on the side of our garage and it freaked both of us out. There was something weird about it. We were trying to figure out what kind of spider it was. It looked similar to a wolf spider but it looked a lot bigger than anything we'd seen. I wasn't about to kill it, and Kev was for sure not wanting to kill it but Kev knew if he didn't it would be crawling around. So he ran in the house and grabbed some LYSOL (so creative). He sprayed it for a while and it didn't move so he decided to try flicking it off the garage with a stick and once it fell he would step on it. Don't forget it was dark and really hard to see anything. Anyway, Kev flicked it off and the spider shrunk about 4 inches!! What the heck! We were so confused. It took us a while to figure out what happened but Kev finally figured out that it was a wolf spider with a million babies on her back! All the babies crawled everywhere. It was freakin me out (I still get the chills when I look at the pictures). Look at the difference in the pictures. The one on the bottom is what it looked like after Kev flicked it. I made the first picture big so you could see all of the little eyes glowing on the moms back. Sick. Why did I have to see something this nasty? I would feel a lot better if you could see it too. It was crazy.

Thanks to the Letter Factory

video

I bought a Leap Frog video called The Letter Factory. Miss Amber recomended it for kids who needed to learn their letters. I got it for G but West loved watching it with him. I can't believe how quick the boys caught on. If you are looking for a way to teach your kids the letters this is the way to do it! It's perfect for any age and it's only twelve bucks!! West wasn't completely cooperating but I think he did pretty good.

Back to school

I can't believe summer is gone!! It flew by. Garrett was so ready for preschool to start.
He looks so old! I'm not sure if this is my child.
West isn't sure about G going to preschool, he complains the whole time G is gone!
G is loving school and his teachers! He's made some cute friends and he gets a break from his mom. What could be better?
