What DO Spiders do?

This morning when I was helping Gage get dressed, he yelled, "LOOK Mommy!!" His tone kind of frightened me a little, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to look, but I looked where he was pointing and up on the ceiling in his bedroom was a tan spider about the size of a quarter, crawling or should I say, "strutting it's stuff" along the seam between the ceiling and wall, acting as if though it owned the place. I said, "Oh, yep, I wonder where he's going?" and Gage, without skipping a beat said, "He's gonna go play basketball with the big boys." Wow, who knew???
Sorry no picture to share, but by the time I grabbed my camera it had moved on .....

Wow, that you didn't freak out about that, and that you even went for you camera and are okay with it roaming your house.
I didn't know spiders played basketball, either.

Cary has taught the girls to squish them when they see them instead of squealing. It's working. My 5 yr old especially loves to kill them. Is that so bad?
