growing wings to fly

my sweet cousin is a 2nd grade teacher.
this year her class studied caterpillars/butterflies. 

and because she's adorable, 
she brought my girlies a cup of caterpillars to watch.

for the past couple of weeks 
chloe & livy have loved observing
the micro, baby catepillars
grow & grow, 
then make their "coo-coons" 
{as livy calls them}
and finally develop into beautiful butterflies!

it's been a delight! 

*and today we let five little butterflies 
out to make their way in this world! 

this particular butterfly,
"i assume, it was going to bloomingdales 
to buy a hat that will turn out to be a mistake-
as almost all hats are...." 
*name that movie*

I may need to watch that movie now. That is so fun! I love butterflies. Also, this post caused my brain to recite the story of the very hungry caterpillar in my mind. Because I've now read it so many times I have it memorized. :)

makes my heart happy! glad they survived! we released ours into the world on monday...the kids were going nuts! i think some of them were a little emotional to let them go. :)
