i feel like i just sent my child to school
« on: July 05, 2010, 09:05:11 PM »
for the first time  :evil:

got a swarm call and i can't go get it until later this PM.  have a 1730 appointment.  my husband jumped up and said he'd go.  i'm sure he'll do fine.  it's not like we haven't done these together and he usually does the hard part when he goes anyway.  i have just never sent him on a call all by himself  :'(

They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

AW, now, Mama. He's a big boy now. Let him spread his wings a bit.   :)

he did it!  :-)  he got a nice size swarm for this time of year and entertained the neighborhood while he was at it.  the swarm had started building comb in the tree...odd for this area and he gave it to the kids.

i am so very, very, proud   :-D

Now you can send him out on his own all the time.    :-D  That will free you up for the more important things, like sitting under a tree and monitoring the flight paths of the girls.  Don't forget your cold drink and sunglasses.... 8-)
