We are not finding the time for a “real” post. I (j) keep thinking it is on the upcoming weekend… Life is good, but busy; and we are trying to keep the balance. At least we have had a chance to post some pics, and a fun movie of Natasha and the “i’m gonna get you” game. See the flickr site. More soon.
Random nature moment: Last weekend, the four of us hiked down to the river from our place. At the river Wendy found a spider the size of an argentine ant that had a metallic silver conical butt. Wild. Then we watched it act out “shooting” its invisible web, then cinching it tight once it attached to the nearest object. Then, no acting involved, it started its escape– crawling perfectly horizontal. We repeated a couple times to discern that it was using the wind to shoot the web. Nice to finally figure out how they do that.
