Gross Spiders and Cute Kids

This landed on Mary’s book while she was reading yesterday:

I kill a lot of bugs and spiders in our house,  and a few are interesting enough to deserve a portrait before meeting their demise. This little guy looks like it’s half scorpion, half spider. (The book is At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson. I strongly recommend it.)

A couple of kids improved their grades in my class today:

Flattering, but someone needs to teach Alia the word “hyperbole.”

Do I care that they were obviously made in two minutes right before PE started? No.

    The spider not so much but the kids! Yeah!!!! Happy, happy birthday. Haouli La Hanau! That’s Hawaiian – I don’t remember the Samoan version. Guess you have found a new profession! Either recording spiders for the archives or teaching PE! Continue to have fun – each year is precious. Aloha, Auntie Jeanne and Uncle Li’a
