Update on the Hive Painting Project at Heritage Academy

Mark talked to Cary today, to see when he could pick up the hive bodies. We knew they'd been on display last Monday night during an open house event, and we'd planned to attend . . . but we were sitting in a broken down pickup waiting on a tow truck in Alabama.

But I digress.

Apparently, the hives are so popular that the teachers at Heritage  want to keep them around a while longer as decorations in the hallways. There's another open house coming up, and we hope to make it to that one.

Mark's been contacted by two local newspapers about feature stories, so he's excited. We hope to be able to post pictures soon! I can't wait to see what the students have created.

Arizona Bees in the Winter

Robert and Danielle went on a hike and sent us fabulous photos of bees foraging in the desert. I think the first one is magazine cover worthy. Robert gets amazing shots without a fancy camera -- at one point in his life he wanted to be a wildlife photographer. He has the eye for it!

How Robert got so lucky to find Danielle, who is not freaked out by bugs, geckos, or snakes, is beyond me. We love her!

You can read more about our honey adventures in Arizona here, here, and see other bee photos Robert took here.
