how does your garden grow

We spent an hour outside doing some gardening. Well, mostly I did the gardening, while the kids ran about, getting into trouble and having fun. We discovered a new clump of spiderlings right on our back step. I’ve been trying to instill a neutral attitude towards bugs, rather than a fear of bugs, in the kids, so I brought them over to have a look. It helps that we just read Charlotte’s Web (J asked: “Where’s the egg sac?”) so they were familiar with the idea of hundreds of little tiny spiders all together. 🙂

Our garden needs major work… oh well… one long weekend at a time…

    ha ha, yeah, sometimes it takes nerves of steel not to over-react and scream every time I see a large bug… 🙂

    now I just hope that there aren’t hundreds of spiders crawling in through the back door… [shudder]
