There is rarely a time I will not pick up a camera given a photo opportunity. However, this was an exception. This 5 foot long black snake slithered it's way up onto my front porch this afternoon right at the end of our Tapestry Class. Elise said, "Mom, get the camera!" My repsonse? "EXCUSE ME, ELISE?! Are you kidding me??" She then grabbed the camera and went out onto the porch to take pictures of the kids trying to capture it. (This from a girl who makes her dad come and kill a tiny spider in her bathroom.)What you can't aprreciate from these pictures are the deafening screams of 7 girls running around while the boys tried to corral it.
Safely in the box! Sean promises me that his dad will come by later this afternoon to pick it up and keep it as a pet. John, I'm counting on you!
