At Least I Didn't Scream

This afternoon, while Anthony was taking a nap, Catherine, Dominic, Joseph, and I went down to our woodsy area to pick mulberries.  I wasn't paying that much attention where I was walking and all of a sudden I saw movement on the ground.  Right before it zipped away, I saw that I had almost stepped on a snake!  Granted, it was only a garter snake, but it sure startled me and I hollered out, "Aaahhh!"  The kids jumped back, but I think only Dominic actually saw it.  I didn't want to freak out the kids, so I acted like it was no big deal (and really, it shouldn't be), and we continued on our path.  I must confess, though, my heart was pounding for a bit.
