Rose and I bought grow your own butterfly kits from Insect Lore at Hobby Lobby a couple weeks ago. It took about a week for our larvae to arrive but they showed up in our mailbox last night. I was nervous about opening the box this morning. First, it was cold yesterday and I don't know how long they were in the mailbox. Second, it said open immediately but I wanted to wait for the girls to be awake so they could see it right away. Third, I was afraid of what was in there. I'm not a big fan of the creepy and the crawly.
I was pleasantly surprised, nothing too creepy. They were packaged upside down and I didn't see any movement at first but now all 5 baby caterpillars are crawling around. I'm excited to chart their growth progress over the next couple weeks!
In other news I finally bit the bullet and transplanted the rainbow plants. I hope I didn't kill them. They seem rather fragile.
Kennedy made this little flower pot at Bible study a couple weeks ago.
I have quite the collect of books waiting to be picked up from the library for our butterfly studies. I'll get a book list up soon.
