in the kitchen

a spider has made her home in our kitchen window, we saw fit to call her Charlotte. we've watched her spin her web, and snack on various insects. her abdomen has grown enormus. today, we watched her lay her egg sack. it sounds really intrusive, but it was really cool. i had to catch a few photos...
it.was.so.interesting! her belly contracted, it took her about 15 minutes, then she spun it up so tight it is almost unrecognizable. the kids watched in amazement. we will track the progress for sure.

then it was off to the floor races with these two. Theo officially put his knees to the metal on the night of April 22nd...
and is only getting more speedy.
