Butterfly Beauty


It all started with a young boy....


A couple of caterpillars....


A Jar from Mama....
And this was the result.
The caterpillars ate and ate for a few days
the spun a cocoon.

After a bunch of days (around weeks I think) the young boy saw this....and proceeded to run around and excitedly tell the household of his new observation.

After watching the butterflies dry off...


The young boy put them on his finger.....

And sent them on their way....

And this is all he was left with!
And of course a great learning experience :)

Now fast forward to today....
This same (dirty) young boy and his (really dirty) brothers were playing outside....

So wonderful that your family could be part of experiencing such a marvelous part of God's creation. Amazing how those light wings can flutter through the air on such a breezy day.

So cool! We've got the same thing going on at our house right now. I didn't know what kind of butterfly we'd get from that kind of caterpillar. Now we know, and when I showed my kids, they were thrilled to see that we'd be getting a monarch!
