Five Photo Friday

A look back at our week--in pictures:

MC earned his purple belt.  It's slow-going, but he's plugging away at it, working toward red belt, and maybe eventually black belt...

MC and Sawblock attended the year-end Cub Scout camp-out. 
Here's MC (2nd from the left) with his Webelos den, looking rather contemplative.

Meet Super Hero Tiny--amazingly small, but about 10 times bigger than the first time we saw him, in this photo taken Tuesday (photo is NOT life size--those are centimeters).  We've seen about 12 itty-bitty monarch larvae this week.

We had a visitor on Wednesday morning.  I'm generally of the live-and-let-live persuasion when it comes to frogs, bugs, snakes, and other creepy crawlies, but I am not very forgiving when they show up where they do not belong. 

Like inside our house. 

This little guy (about 8 inches long, black with a red stripe) fell out of Roger's t-shirt when I picked it up to lay it out for him to get dressed.  I'm not going to bore you with the details of exactly what happened, but let's just say that at least one member of the household was screaming like a girl, and at least one family member ran away as fast as possible and jumped shriekingly on my bed, as I realized that yes, it was still alive, and a cool whip container and file folder were gonna be too flimsy to contain while lifting.

This is why I have a husband.  To remove snakes from our house (and yes, it's happened before, although that one was much bigger (they grow 'em big in WV)...)

Today was Caleb's last day of preschool for the year. 
We met at a park and the kids sang a few songs for us :)

Today was also AKD's 6th grade field day.  It's that crazy end-of-the-school-year time, when we've got something going each day at one or more schools.  Nine more days!
