Butterflies



As you can tell from my banner we like butterflies at our house! Pre-school has been studying the life cycle of the butterfly, my 5 year old can tell you all about it! As he tells us and everyone else every day... anyway he loves to talk about the chrysalis and if you think about it once again (we all learned it in school as kids) it really is amazing going from an ugly caterpillar to a shriveled up brown casing to a beautiful flying creature! My husband (yes?!) got in on it and ordered a butterfly kit and here is a picture of the newly hatched butterflies. All 5 of them hatched! We were very fortunate. Two hatched the first day and the other three the second day of hatching time (yesterday). They're called Painted Lady Butterfly and have pretty colors on their wings. So now to convince my little one to let them free! Have a nice weekend and a family and or fun filled Memorial Day, remember for a moment all those who have served. I think of my Dad :) (he served in WWII).

It is fun! It is called "Live Butterfly Garden" and hy DH got it through amazon.com but I believe it is available at the Discovery Channel store and other Science stores, maybe even Toys-r-us.
