Butterflies Hatched!

For Benjamin's 5th birthday he got a gift card from the McClellan Family in IN. He chose a butterfly kit. We ordered the caterpillars a couple of weeks ago. We watched the caterpillars eat and grow. They then turned into chrysalises, and today 4 of the 5 butterflies came out. They are painted lady butterflies. Two were already out when we woke up. We watched one come out at breakfast, one came out while we were gone, and there is still one chrysalis left to hatch. We released the 4 butterflies today. Here are some pictures of our butterflies.

Benjamin was really proud of his butterfly. Thank you McClellan Family.
Michael thought that holding it on flowers was good enough!
