Well we've had our caterpillar "babies" for 3 days now and let me just tell you how amazed I already am. Look at the difference in size already!!!
Looked what showed up on my door step this morning!!!
If you don't remember us raising butterflies last year, then I'd love for you to follow along with us this year while we enjoy our favorite spring tradition!
This year was pretty cool, because we actually received a live insect certificate to get 5 caterpillars for free since we lost so many last year. So of course when it started to warm up outside I couldn't wait to send it in and get started!!!
Now if you want to start doing this with your family, your first package will look a little different. Since this isn't our first time and we already had the Butterfly Garden, we just got a little refill kit that included our caterpillars, a feeding dropper, and instructions.
Right after I opened up the box I let Bentley hold onto the cup and see his new little friends. He immediately started to call them his "babies" and kiss the cup! It was one of the cutest things I've ever seen and why I love doing these kind of family traditions. Kids seem to have a different perspective on the activity each year as they get older.
I hope that you'll stay tuned with us as our little guys grow and change. It really is an amazing thing to watch and share!
If you want to raise your own butterflies, head on over to Insect Lore! There's still time to get your hands on some caterpillars or even some other fun insects such as ants, ladybugs, and even frogs!
... to be able to say that I am able to be a part of such an amazing and loving church, Coram Deo.
In the 19 years that I have been alive and known about faith, this is honestly the first time that I have been able to lift my hands up, sing, and be myself as I worshiped.
Right as I waked into those doors I was greeted with open arms and loving gestures. I knew that it was the place for me and my family.
Now I know that it is already May (wow) and Easter was in March, but since I have been off the blogging radar for some time I thought I would share these amazing videos that portray what my church did during Holy Week! Sadly I wasn't able to go to the Good Saturday event but I am so proud of how much food was raised. Watch this short video to find out exactly how much...
