Billy visited again:)  Do ya think he's feeling the pre-test stress??
Billy's trainer has several tarantulas.  You can read all about our visit with
some of them HERE.  Anywhosie, her biggest tarantula molted and she brought
this in for us to have.....

Freaky?  Yes!

  2. Wow, those tarantulas would scare me to death. Very cool, though. I'm sure the kids LOVED it!

  3. Omgoodness, you are incredibly brave- those pics of the tarantula made me woozy, I can't imagine the real thing!!

    Don't you just love those fans? We use them for reading comprehension and they are such a lifesaver (especially on days I haven't had enough coffee to think on my own!)

    Happy weekend!!

  4. First a snake in your house and then a tarantula (and its moltedness) at school. YIKES!

    You are one amazing woman. Now if I could just subscribe to your posts and get the words only...

    Happy Friday!

  5. Seriously got chills looking at those spider pics...gross! :)


  6. I'm trying to guess what kind of creature you're going to post pics of next.... :)


  7. I just love your pictures of Billy. The tarantula's molted "skin", not so much.

    Can't wait to link up with you on Monday!

    Fun in Room 4B
