A Caterpillar and 9 Days...


...until school is OUT FOR SUMMER!!!!! Woo Hoo! The boys are excited and so am I! This week is teacher appreciation week at Sam's school. Monday was a bundle of pencils and big erasers. Yesterday he took in a flower and today a bundle of Tootsie Pops. Every day is something different. Will asked me for $65 to buy the schools yearbook! Yikes!! He said he is on the opening page Yo-yoing..! I need to get in the $$ for the Student Life Camp coming up. I think I am past due...lot going on! Sam is going to Church Camp in June for a week! He is VERY excited! I think I can do this (me. not Sam!)
I found the BIGGEST. FATTEST. YECHHHHHHiest very hungry caterpillar on my bell pepper plant yesterday!!! I couldn't take a photo of it because I was so heaved out!!!! It was as big as my index finger!! Still gives me the willies! Then my friend Jen found ANOTHER one!! They had decimated my plant in 24 hours! the first got a wild flight ride over the fence into one neighbor's yard and the 2nd one was thrown over into another's yard! I'll take a plant photo later and post...

I hate all bugs. I even hate them when they turn into butterflies. If a butterfly flies near me i'll scream!
Enjoy the holidays when they come!

As a former teacher, I am loving the idea of teacher appreciation week. We don't have anything like that in Australia.

That is one humungus caterpillar and if he/she knows what's good for them, they won't be bothering you again.
