Kylie had her Kindergarten program, “Goin‘ Buggy” last night…too cute. She played a bumblebee, had an apron, bumblebee bib, star antenna, and a ladle. Watching her on stage singing about bugs was, for lack of a better word…adorable. She danced around a bit and had some priceless facial expressions, especially during the ladybug song.
The play didn’t last long, which was probably good since Grayson was a bit of a loon. He kept wanting down, then didn’t really know how to handle the slant of the auditorium floor and wanted back up, then wanted back down again. Trinity also has this uncanny talent for making him screech like you’ve stabbed him or something, which happened about every 3 minutes or so. He was quite fascinated by the disco ball during the firefly song…much appreciated silence.
I heard Kara a few times, but she chose to sit with her mother…who remarkably decided to grace everyone with her appearance at one of her children’s activities. I believe this has only happened 3 or 4 other times in their lives.
After arriving home, we gathered some bugs (a mosquito, and some tiny ants) for Kylie to take to school to feed the baby chicks in their classroom. While killing some ants, I noticed what appeared to be a dead spider in the laundry room. I asked Greg to make sure it was dead, then put it in the bag with the other bug carcasses. Greg in his infinite wisdom, kicks the spider towards me rather than stepping on it, only to discover it wasn’t actually dead. It proceeded to jump down the floor vent and disappear into the darkness. When the girls had gone to bed, Greg and I were talking in the computer room when I casually put my hand on my knee, brushing something fuzzy with my pinkie. Looking down, I see a fuzzy caterpillar making its way up my leg. (I was wearing jeans, so I couldn’t feel it wiggling.) After doing the “Get it off, get it off” dance, we placed it (still alive) in the bag with the other bugs. Kylie was crazy excited about bringing it to school. (Not real sure if she realized she was condemning this creature to death.) For the rest of the night I felt creepy crawlies…non-existent of course.
