The reason why I didn't want to move to Arizona.

We discovered two scorpions near the pantry today. Yesterday I ran into one while sweeping the floor (yes, I don't let Mary do EVERYTHING) For most "zoni's" this is not that big of a deal, but for me=HUGE.
After reading a article this morning about the deadly affect they have on children if stung, I:

1. Decided to make my children wear shoes everywhere.
2. Fed the prisoners (named Ted and Chip) live bugs. While we watched the scorpions repeatedly sting bugs to death then eat, I then told the kids that is what the scorpions do to skin if touched.
3. Then I gave Oliver the jar with Ted and Chip to look at while I change his pants.
