Bye-Bye Butterflies

A few weeks ago, we watched five little caterpillars form chrysalises and change into Painted Lady Butterflies.  On Earth Day, we released the butterflies in our backyard.  The first three butterflies happliy flew away, but the last two were more hesitant to leave their cozy habitat.  Allana watched and waited patiently for each butterfly to fly away safely.  Eventually, the last two left the nest and the butterflies have been fluttering around our garden and the neighborhood ever since.

    The black and white dress on your header is so beautiful. I know, wierd thing to notice…..

  4. So cool! We get to do this next year (for school)… We should be doing it now, but I guess it’s too hot now to send them. I guess I can see why… We live in AZ. =)
    We’re really looking forward to doing it next year though!

  5. That is so neato! Did you order them or find them yourself? My boys would love to do that! (They are covered in caterpillars in my last week’s WW…)
