We Have Butterflies!!

For Elizabeth's birthday she received this cage and a certificate to get some caterpillars that will later turn into butterflies. But since it was sooo hot in July we had to wait to receive the caterpillars in the mail. we did have caterpillars that ate & ate & ate until they got really big (in about a week) and turned into cocoons and now we have butterflies (5 to be exact). You can see in the pic a butterfly wing towards the back and two cocoons hanging from the piece of paper. It was a thrilling experience. We might have to do it again.
