Not so squeamish

This morning after dispatching a spider in the house, Tom commented to me that we need to encourage Lukas to not be so squeamish around spiders.  Lukas' new friend from his new music class is perfect for this:  after music class, we all went to a local library with a pond and ducks.  The friend and his brother were actively searching in the leaf litter around the pond for spider egg cases to take home and watch hatch.  Lukas and Konrad were following them everywhere...this is definitely a good example of old-fashioned boy behavior!

And the friend even caught a turtle for Lukas to hold.  Now we just have to get him to hold a spider, and all will be well.
