Well, yesterday afternoon Brian and Sami came to get Dash. They all had gone to NY with the Grants Pass High Band. (Pictures later) The 200 band members and 200 parents/friends all rode charter buses to Seattle and then flew to NY. The way back home was long, and they didn't get back to Grants Pass and home until 4:30am yesterday morning. Everyone is tired, and at least they have an extra day before work and school tomorrow.
Dude and Dash were excited seeing Brian's truck coming up our road..
Dash was OVER THE TOP excited to see his dad and Sami!

Some amazing clouds over the Berkshire mountains ...
Interesting about Wolf Spider
The Carolina Wolf Spider was named South Carolina’s official state spider back in 2000. It is currently the only state that recognizes a state spider.
The Carolina Wolf Spider (also known as the Giant Carolina Wolf Spider) is the largest wolf spider in North America and is one of the largest species of wolf spiders found worldwide. This massive creepy creature is 3-4 inches in length and lives across the US and southern Canada.
Wolf spiders have a tendency to hunt at night and they also hunt alone. They are camouflage in color and are known for being great mothers. Another interesting fact about the wolf spider is that it ranks 3rd for best eyesight; only behind the jumping spider and the huntsman spider. A sure way of spotting a wolf spider in the dark is by focusing a flashlight at eye level of the spider; its eyes are reflective to light!
