Go to the ant

This time of year I always have a few uninvited guests sneaking into the house. Yes, we get ants. I thought this season, in the spirit of our good friend Charlotte Mason, we would use this inconvenience as an opportunity for nature study. We found their home and thought it was rather impressive. When we moved a bit of the dirt, the ants scurried around like mad and started carrying away their eggs (see the brown arrow on photo #2). Such hard workers, kind of makes me feel guilty for squashing them on my counter ~ guess I'll just have to make them my special sugar borax pudding. Funny, they never return after I fix that particular dessert.
