Every year we order caterpillars, but I forgot this year:( It slipped my mind and I just forgot. It is always such a wonderful experience to watch the caterpillars grow and turn into a butterfly! The girls love it and it really is such a magical experience!
We were on our way to run some errands the other day when Audrey hollered, “Look Mommy! A big worm climbing up the house!” Well, upon closer inspection it turned out to be a big, fat caterpillar who was climbing to higher ground to make his chrysalis!
Well we scooped him up and put him in our butterfly garden kit from last year. The very next day he made his chrysalis! Come to find out, our front yard is swarming with big fat caterpillars! We have already found 4 of them!!
Keep your eyes open for those caterpillars:)
Update: Thanks to the first person who left a comment under this post, I did a bit of research: Is is a butterfly or the terrible gypsy moth? Good news: we have 4 Morning Cloak Butterflies! That was quite a scare though! I sure know more about the difference after my research:)
