Taking Flight

Finally (OK, about 2 weeks ago...forgive me for being behind!!) we released our butterflies. For the last 4 years I have been hatching butterflies in my classroom and for the last 3 years I've brought a few home for Brendan to hatch. He absolutely LOVES this. To see the change is AMAZING! The caterpillars grow at morph speed...eating ... eating... eating. Then they form their chrysalis and the change begins...into a beautiful and colorful butterfly. It truly is exciting to see. So we finally set them free.

PS- don't my lilacs look beautiful!
