Happy Birthday and Farewell!

The kids were so thrilled to see the butterfly come out 
of the chrysalis, since about seven days ago it
had been a caterpillar.  One boy asked, "Is this real?" 
 I suppose in their animated movies, so many things seem 
real that are not.  I am so glad that he asked!
This is one of the five Painted Lady Butterfly.  
It is a beautiful specimen!
Here are the kids out on the playground about to watch
their winged friends be set free.  They all wanted to hold one, 
but it just wasn't possible and the butterflies were just too 
antsy to stay put anyway

  1. Whoa, kids, you're so lucky to be able to watch that for real!!! It's a miracle that a "worm" can turn into a beautiful butterfly!! Teach your friends that we just touch the butterflies with our eyes, not our fingers. Thank you, Mrs. Preheim, for making sure the children got to see such a wonderful thing!
