191/365... Bye bye butterflies joy.

The lifecycle of a butterfly is truly a miraculous thing. We have watched caterpillars grow, make their cocoons, and then hatch as beautiful butterflies. It truly has been a wonderful learning experience for my kiddos.

Today, we let them go into their natural habitat. My oldest son grew pretty attached to the butterflies. Although he understood why we needed to let them go, he cried when the last one flew away.

We can never get a dog.

Bye bye butterflies joy.

What a sweetheart! And do tell me what you think of the Finding the Light workshop you and Courtney are in. I am still saving for my lenses, then it is on with the workshops! And I found a super cute camera bag for taking it with (not for storage, just for little trips around town). kettihandbags.com super cute!
