Homegrown Butterflies!

A couple of months ago, I bought one of those butterfly habitats since the girls love butterflies and I thought it would be fun. A couple weeks later, we got 5 tiny little caterpillars in the mail and about a week after that they were huge caterpillars that turned into cocoons, and then about a week later they were butterflies! After the butterflies appeared, Savannah kept asking me where the caterpillars went so I'm not sure she quite understood what happened, but Bubba and I both thought it was pretty neat to watch the whole process so it was still worth it! Here is one of the butterflies on the day that we finally decided to let them go!

What a great idea-I had no idea you could purchase caterpillars!
