PE/Science: We worked on our 80+ acres for several hours "clearing land." I feel like the Steeds sometimes. I've never moved so much brush, trees and limbs in my life as in the last couple of weeks. Today, since we were moving old fence posts, we saw over 20 very big man-eating Hobo spiders. We also saw lots of mice and lots of other creepy crawlies. It was very exciting for the kids and the dogs. (When we came home we looked up a lot of different spiders to try and identify some of the ones we saw). Caleb's highlight was that he was stung by two bees/wasps. He has a pobia about bee stings to begin with, so this was not a good moment for him.
