Look what came in the mail!!

During our reading time today I was reading a book about bugs to the children to find out which insects they wanted to learn about. As we were reading the book the mailman came up the driveway with a small package. It was very exciting(and timely) to open the package and see 5 small caterpillars!! In a few weeks(after they eat and get fatter) they will attach themselves to the paperdisk at the top of the container. Then we will transfer the paperdisk to the butterfly house to watch them form their crysallis and then emerge as butterflies!!

Here are the insects they chose to study! I love the variety!!

My mother-in-law has been frequenting this blog and is so happy that you are doing this, she feels such a part of Chase's life! Now she can ask him all about things he is doing in school and be able to visualize with what she has seen...Thank you Mary-Kate!
