Thought I needed an updated picture.
This morning as I was getting the kids ready for school, I pulled out Abigail's lunch bag and got splattered by something. Felt a bit like wet sand, only it stuck to me. Then it started moving. Then I realized it was ants. LOTS of ants. I tell the kids if they don't eat all their food to bring it home, but I didn't mean if it was opened. She had 2 crackers in there that ants were covering. COVERING. They were everywhere. Her backpack was in front of the door and I guess they just marched right on in. I first vacuumed them up with the mini-vac, but then the battery died so I got the big one. In the meantime, Elijah emptied out the little one and had crumbs and ants everywhere. Fun. All this is going on when I'm in a hurry to get the kids ready and myself. It was a fun morning. Got the kids lunches packed and I guess got distracted b/c 2 of them didn't make it into their backpacks Found them as soon as David pulled away, called him and he came back. But ugh! It was not a fun morning.
