We are being overrun with tarantulas!!!! Aidan found one the other day and captured it in a glass jar. The next morning he got up early and put it in his backpack to take to school without our knowledge. That afternoon after school he was upset because his tarantula almost died while he was playing football at recess from the sun. So he released it on the PLAYGROUND!! So this is an apology to the staff and children of Baker Elementary, we as the parents of Aidan had no idea and are very sorry! Then there was #2 tarantula he stayed for a couple of days and then was released into the wild (alley). And hopefully the last one (doubtful) #3 arrived yesterday and was found by the ever so GIRLY Maude! She was going out to swing and enjoy a snack in the very warm sunny afternoon when a TARANTULA was doing the same. So the BLOOD CURLING scream awakend all of my senses when she found him under her swing eating a dead bird!!!!! She came in screaming crying and shaking, the boys couldn't push her out of the way quick enough to go see.


  1. Ewwww. I don't mind spiders as long as they are not hairy. So, I'm with Maude.

    How about a picture of those pretty leaves way up there in Canadian?

  2. I do NOT do spiders. I'd be screaming & crying with Maude!
