Our Butterflies

Nana thought it would be fun for the kids to see the life cycle of a butterfly.
 Our caterpillars arrived in the mail and we read about the stages they would go through on their way to becoming butterflies.
 For a few weeks, we patiently watched as they built their chrysalis'. We watched and waited and eventually, they became beautiful butterflies. 
 Penny took the butterfly house to school to show her friends. That night, we decided it was time to let them be free.  The first three quickly spread their wings and flew off into the sunset.
 But the fourth little guy hung around for a while and let us really examine just how beautiful a butterfly is.
 Penny loves looking out the back window to see if she can see her butterflies.
 I think Porter loved them too!
