Monarch (Caterpillar) Watch!
But just a couple of days ago, there were more caterpillars! My father had gotten more milkweed, a favourite for Monarchs, and it attracted more caterpillars. Now there are three rapidly growing caterpillars. We check on them multiple times a day to see if we need to switch out the milkweed (we have at least one more in case they eat all the leaves on the current one). I'm hoping that at least one will remain to make its cocoon there so the kids can see. Until then, we're on Monarch (caterpillar) watch!
