Eeeeeeeeek !!! Spiders !!!
Field’s of Daisies Friday Favorites….Spider Fun.
It’s a stretch y’all.
So for anyone who knows me, it will come as no surprise when I say
spiders are NOT my favorite.
Not on Fridays, not on Mondays, not on any day !!!
Why is it all spiders can’t be cute, little, eency weeny spiders that spend their time climbing up a water spout outside?
Or be as friendly and kind as Charlotte?
Or as poetic as Dickinson’s spiders?
But alas, much to my chagrin (and confusion),
KIDS SEEM TO LOVE TO LEARN ABOUT SPIDERS!
So… This Friday’s Favorite is a smorgasbord of
my errr… some free spider favs online.
