Here are a few pictures of our butterfly family from this year. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did. Raising butterflies is a project that, for us, never gets old. Mr. A enjoyed it so much this year we may even order another batch of caterpillars and have a second go of it later in the summer. It's always amazing to see the transformation. The babycakes even enjoyed sitting with us watching the butterflies fly around their habitat on occasion. We had the added treat this year of being able to see one of the butterflies as it was emerging.
The day we let them go, it really was a beautiful day. Those butterflies were very happy to be set free. As soon as the breeze hit their habitat they started fluttering around like crazy. A few of them flew out right away and a couple needed a little hand from A (which he was happy to lend).
Now it's your turn!
We want to see your butterfly families too. If you have a post about your experience raising butterflies this year, link it up here! If you haven't raised butterflies that's ok too. Feel free to link up any butterfly craft or activity you have done recently. The linky will be open all summer (until Sept 1st) so feel free to come back and add to it, or just visit.
