I put on my suit, and thought I'd join her. But then I saw there were at least 20 spiders crawling on the sliding part of her slip-n-slide. Ugh. The grass is teeming with spiders due to our mild winter and so I just watched from the safety of the deck. Yes, I grew up on a farm and I used to swim in a creek with snakes and play in a hayloft shared with pigeons and spiders. I don't know what happened, but I do not run in the grass with spiders nowadays. I don't want to transfer my fear to her though, so when she casually mentioned that she had a spider on her leg, I calmly said, "Just brush it off." She did.
Here's a cute video of her running. She's saying, "This is so much fun!" and variants thereof.
I love afternoons like this.
