Butterflies!


Our butterflies have emerged!  Every day or two for the last week, a butterfly has emerged from its cocoon, with the last two emerging today.  My sister happened to be here with her new camera, so she got some good photos of the second butterfly. We ended up with three females and one male.  The kids, and the rest of us, loved watching the caterpillars and butterflies, and I'm so glad we had this opportunity.

  1. How great for all of you. A lesson in life and patience, yes? Caterpillars don't become butterflies overnight.

    1. Now that all the butterflies have emerged, though, the kids seem rather impatient for their little sibling to be born! :-)
