There are bugs and snakes in Missouri, but things in Texas seem a little bigger and more scary to Addie. So far, Chad caught a tarantula.
Addie thought that was the coolest thing.
Nicole had a big lizard that almost ran up her leg when she was on the porch putting on her shoes.
Chad brought a big UV light and he’s been out every night searching for scorpions. I had convinced myself that Cat had been keeping them away but I think the batteries are so low in my little UV light that I haven’t been seeing them. Chad has killed 3 or 4 good sized scorpions every night outside and I killed a good sized one in the kitchen Sunday night.
Addie got into fire ants . . the Texas critters are out in full force this time of year, and they aren’t very welcoming.
