A Day in the life of Charlotte.

We've had our very own Charlotte here for several days.
We'd noticed in the mornings, in the same place, the remains of a web.
Then one night, out our sliding door, during Life Group, Nate watched a spider spin.

As I painted outside a couple of evenings this week (hopefully I'll have pictures of projects soon), I saw the same spider, gargantuan, hanging there working.

Spurred on by Malia's interest, "Charlotte" became our science project for the day.

4 Different Times, 4 Sets of Pictures, 4 Journal Entries about what we observed at each time:

9:00 a.m.
The picture didn't give an accurate view.
There were remains of the previous night's web's support structure in the tomato cage.

 There were also two long strands connected to the gutters above.
You can barely see their glimmer in the middle of this picture.

Malia's observations.

1:00 p.m.
 Aliza picked old tomatoes.

6:30 p.m.
8:10 p.m.


  1. That is soo cool! Your family is wonderful!

    What I think the kids will remember the most, is that they got to be outside, in their pajamas, after bedtime! What a fun science lesson. Loved Malia's journal entries.

  3. What fun to watch you all discover and watch the spider and then feed it. What an adventure and one to remember for a long time! Love it!
