"...and the Butterflies Fly Away"

If you have not heard that song, you must not be living in a house full of girls. We hear it a lot... times three!

For Christmas the girls got a Butterfly Garden we waited until it was warm out to send out our certificate for the butterfly larvae and their special food. It was the neatest thing to watch as the caterpillars grew and a couple of days later formed chrysalises. On Sunday, the day of the walk, they became beautiful butterflies, orange Painted Ladies, although the girls though they should have been purple. I am not sure who was more excited all the adults that were here watching them or the girls. It was pretty amazing, although they all came out of their chrysalises while no one was watching. I am pretty sure we will do this again!

This is the only one that stuck around and did not fly away, he was just hanging out and eating the watermelon.
