This morning we woke up to 4 beautiful butterflies in our butterfly tent. About 30 minutes later we watched the 5th butterfly emerge. It was so exciting to watch. We have spent quite a bit of time this morning watching them spread their wings while hanging from the side of the tent. Then one-by-one they have each begun to flutter around the tent and have even enjoyed some nectar from the flowers we placed in the bottom of the tent for them. Who knew it would such fun watching caterpillars turn into chrysalids and then into butterflies. I’m quite sure we’ll be ordering more caterpillars in the future so we can watch the metamorphosis all over again.
I’m beginning to wonder who is going to enjoy this homeschooling thing more – me or the girls? 🙂
