butterflies


We have had some unique guests in our home the past couple of weeks- 5 butterflies.
 Daniel received a butterfly kit for his birthday and last month the caterpillars arrived and have now finally turned into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies! It has been very fascinating for both me and the boys to watch their metamorphosis take place in our kitchen.  
I often find him just gazing at them and he asks to hold them everyday. Since they have always lived in a mesh cage, I don't think they realize they can fly and are happy to perch on his hand while he holds them.
