We went hiking in the foothills on Saturday, and had a wonderful time. The nature center had a story for the kids to read along the way. There were posts every 50ft. or so, and each post had another page of the story. The story explained that bees are just as afraid of us as we are of them. This is a great story for Lilly, who continues to have a terrible fear of all flying things. She's terrified of flies, bees, butterflies......she screams as if a leg has been amputated and then shudders for a few minutes afterwards. We try to tell her all the bugs are nice, and say "shoo shoo" while waving your hand. It's slightly better than it was, but we won't be going in the butterfly exhibit at the zoo this summer. Last year it was like we sent her straight into the movie arachnophobia, poor baby.
