katina the chrysalis ii


Here she is! The little thing on the bottom of the jar is her caterpillar skin. Apparently, she splits her skin while hanging from the twig, and the chrysalis shell is revealed. We must have missed this dramatic moment this morning while at VBS. It would have been neat to watch.

that's so neat!
The kids and I just received 5 little caterpillars that will turn into "Painted Lady" butterflies!
We'll keep checking your blog!
Say hi to C and the girlies :)

You take a break~and put your feet up! After 435 kids and VBS you deserve a break! Make yourself a glass of tea and relax!
