...your kids look like this.
Well, at least my kids do. When my boys were young, we made the yearly trek to see the doctor for poison ivy on their faces. With Eva and Joy, it is no different. They are out in the woods having a grand time like the brothers before them. After all, it is summer! And what kid doesn't want to build their own hideout?
Behind a tree covered in poison ivy? No problem. Just chop it off with you handy dandy machete. Then it's all gone and no more worries.
Needless to say, Eva and Joy learned their lesson, as well as the phrase, "If it's three, leave it be."
This morning, I walked outside to behold this beautiful masterpiece. I was amazed at the details these spiders took at constructing their own pagoda-like mansions.
Each little dome, held a single, tiny spider. As much as I hated to see half of my bush destroyed, I couldn't bring myself to tear down the mansions.
