Butterfly Release Party

Mary Lou and I got little bug huts for the kids and have been excitedly collecting bugs and caterpillars with Owen, Emma, Stewart, Sean and Rita.

Many of our spiny elm caterpillars had cocooned in their huts and now, after about two weeks, three of them turned into butterflies.

I don't think the kids were half as excited as Mary Lou and I were. Emma and Rita were marginally interested, but once Stewart realized he couldn't touch them he started eating dirt, and Owen just wanted to roll the ball down the stairs over and over again.

Ah, well- I tried, didn't I?

Check out the pictures.
