"it's a bee test!!!"

See this?

See her?

Yeah ... it stung her.  But she has got to be the bravest girl I know.

For some reason, there are a lot of bees hanging around us at the pool.  Curt, ever the naturalist, has been instructing the girls on proper bee behavior {which surprisingly doesn't involve petting them ... well actually, he did pet one, but at least he didn't encourage the girls to do the same}.  And then he tests them when they come around.

So much so that now when Hunter sees a bee she doesn't just alert us of the bee ... instead she screams, "it's a bee test!!!"

So this morning, the bees are flying around and being pretty aggressive.  Curt decides to destroy the ones that come our way, but plummeting them with the newspaper.  Piper yells that she doesn't like it when he kills them.

One lands on her chin.  She sits so still and quiet until it flies away.  Then it lands on a soda can she's drinking from {hmmm, maybe that's why we have bees around?}.  Curt decides to swat it, while she's holding it.

He hits it ... it falls ... right onto Piper's hand and stings her.  She starts screaming, crying, screaming ... and then proceeds to pull the stinger out of her own hand!

We ice it, she's crying, but lunch comes and she finally feels better ... poor little Piper!!
