Ants are trying to take over our property. There are mounds and mounds of their homes outside. I just saw the neighbor out killing ants. And my husband also declared war now that we are finding them in the house, and not just typical areas like the kitchen. Oh no. We have ants in our closet! I find myself shaking out each garment before putting it on. My husband didn’t think of that and uh…kept finding ants biting him all day long. (Insert muffled laughter here.)
Maybe it’s these ants that inspired my daughter Grace’s comment. The other day we were driving through lots of road construction. I was more nervous than usual trying to keep up with all of the changed lanes and exits. From the back seat of the van Grace exclaimed, “Look at the huge ant hill!” Her voice contained all the awe possible.
My first thought was that I couldn’t look because I wanted to stay on the road. Then I thought, “Wow it must be pretty big if she can see it from the van.” Curiosity got the best of me. I turned my head to look. It was the road construction dirt pile! Yep I’d say that would be the world largest ant hill!
