A few nights ago, just before heading to bed, I heard a shriek. Satori screeched, the butterflies have hatched from their cocoons! Sure enough, one did. The next morning, we had another butterfly fluttering around. By that night, all four had emerged.

The red liquid here is not what you think it is, it was the sugary water I put in the butterfly feeder, which had leaked.

That was a few days ago. It has been so cold and rainy out lately that we kept them in our warm house. But today, it was mostly sunny, so today was Butterfly Freedom Day! And it timed perfectly well with the new flowers blooming around our house!

Carefully, we had them crawl on our stick and then Satori let them fly to freedom.

Two butterflies flew way up  high and over our house. Goodbye!!! Two other butterflies stuck near us to hang out for awhile.

Satori can’t wait to try this again. We might do it again this spring, or might wait until next spring.

We had these dinosaur bone kits lying around, so today we finally put them together. We are so close to our dinosaur studies that things are overlapping and I thought it would be fun to do some dino activities today.

There’s 4 total in this collection, here we just have Brachiosaurus and Stegosaurus.

No sooner than we I had this brachiosaurus put together, when someone stuffed some leaves in his mouth! (We often have to stop to feed her plant eating animals grass and leaves.)

Both skeletons have movable jaws so the plant leaves stay!

Also, an update on our caterpillars, they have moved up to the top and formed their cocoon. I’ve moved the chrysalis to their butterfly habitat and now we just wait for them to emerge!

Here they are in their cup they came in. It got quite dirty with lots of caterpillar poop and silk stuff.

I picked up this Live Butterfly Garden and ordered the caterpillars online (they have a free voucher to use, but after reading reviews that it could take a long time, I paid online). Within 2 days of charging my credit card, we received our caterpillars (via USPS priority mail).

Just as promised, we got 5 painted lady caterpillars, and all were alive and crawling around. Although you’re not supposed to leave them in sunlight, we took a minute and snapped a few photos out on our deck where it was bright enough to see them.

We’ll take photos and probably upload them on Amazon as we’ve been doing with all our goodies lately. 🙂

Our Triops are doing well, I think 3 or more have hatched and in a week they should be big enough to take a picture of, which of course I will do. In 4 weeks, they should be an inch or two big, and probably will be creeping me out by then.
