I am not afraid of spiders, but even this was ick! I took the picture first and then killed it!
We aren't quite sure what it is...it was in its web and its death was swift so I didn't check to see if the red marking was on its abdomen or back. But still...yuck.
MK had her first band practice today. She really enjoyed it which was a relief to all of us. I finally had a chance to go inside her new school. It is much bigger than her elementary but I think she is going to be just fine. It starts August 3 so this is a good chance for her to meet some people and get used to being there. T. Willy and I went to the library which is conveniently located across the street. Then we came home and she practiced for us all. It took her a long time to make a noise but once she figured it out, she did really well.
