Letting Our Butterflies Go, Handwriting Without Tears

I’m obviously behind on blogging again. I try to not get behind but, I just can’t keep up. I am also thinking I will give up scrapbooking. I can’t keep up on that either. I am planning on making another blog and only blogging in a way that is for the kids and then I’ll print that blog into a book which will be cheaper and more importantly, take up less room than traditional scrapbooks. I’m going to try that out next year and see how it goes. I’ll miss scrapbooking, though! *cry*

Onto butterflies…
A couple days after the butterflies came out of their cocoons we let them go in our yard. We were really glad we did this butterfly kit right away because the week we let them go was nice and warm out and this last week has been really chilly. The butterflies would still probably be okay but if we waited any longer it’d be too cold here to let them go and have them survive!

A couple of the kids had butterflies land on them or were able to gently catch the butterflies and they were super excited! I didn’t do well at taking pictures because I filmed the whole thing.

One of the butterflies in our habitat came out with deformed wings. We ended up keeping him in the habitat and feeding him since he couldn’t fly and we knew he’d not survive outside. The kids all got to hold him. Brooke named him Miracle.

Back inside we started school time.

Payson and Ember are so cute when they do school together!

These two pictures I actually took when setting the exposure for a movie the girls wanted me to record. They created this long “play” about a queen, princess, and evil dead queen that they wanted me to film. I should probably finish editing it! I’ve just been busy, though!
