The craft kits are prepared. This is my living room by the way, and it has been like that all week.
The Santuary has been transformed into outerspace and the "planets" have appeared.
The "Astro Bistro" is ready for business.
But! I found this little copperhead under a planter right by the front door of the church. I don't like to kill anything unnecessarily but poisonous snakes in an area soon to be filled with children just won't work. I found a small shovel and tried to work up the nerve to kill it myself but I couldn't. It wasn't so much that I was killing a living creature as it was that I might miss and he would be really mad. So...I did the only thing I could think of- I stood guard to make sure the snake didn't move and sent my daughter to call Mike so he would come and kill the snake.
Waiting for Mike to drive here from home was the longest 15 minutes.....but here he is to the rescue!
