Carly

We would like to introduce you to the newest family member.  
 Abigail named her Carly.
 The kids have been studying caterpillars and their change to butterfly at mooseketeers.  So the worms were ordered and over the weeks we fed them until they reached their chrysalis stage.
 From there we brought them home.  Carly emerged last week.  Since then we have held her, watched her fly, and the kids love feeding her everyday.  
Abigail even made Carly a valentine and taped it to her home.  This is one loved butterfly for sure.

I love this!!! I can't wait to do this when the weather will allow us to release them. Your pics are so wonderful--capturing the fascination and love that A and N have...I must say, Naomi looks like she's ready to pounce on Carly ;) Her poor eye...thanks for sharing
