After I got out of the shower this morning I heard Jonah exclaiming “I caught it! I caught it!” He did tell me a few times yesterday that there was a big, cool spider by his window, but I didn’t think much about it. He caught it this morning and he and Logan did all they could to learn who exactly their bedroom visitor was. This is what I found on the table when I sat down for breakfast:
They used their field guide searching skills and discovered they had a Daring Jumping Spider. Jonah made him a habitat in a jar. Logan drew a picture. All the boys went out in the rain in search of small insects to feed him.
I love it when stuff like this happens with absolutely no input (or interference) from me. I hadn’t even eaten breakfast yet and I could count it as a good school day.
