Those Little Life Lessons

We now know the identifying markings of a copperhead snake.

(Ask us how we know...)

Well...

We were walking down the sidewalk in our neighborhood the other day, and the snake came out of someone's overgrown lawn and hissed at us. We stood and looked at each other for two or three minutes, taking in the details of that thing. Then it turned tail and slithered off toward a tree.

We went home, looked online and discovered that all signs pointed to copperhead.

We are *so* careful to pay attention when we walk now. I was actually in the front and passed that thing without even seeing it, I was thinking so hard. My two children behind me saw it first.
