The Painted Ladies

Today Grace set her butterflies free! These are the butterflies that Grace had as tiny caterpillars at Maddy and Poppy's house. Grace opened the butterfly habitat and the five Painted Ladies fluttered gently out. One butterfly landed in a patch of grass and Grace sat and watched it for almost ten minutes. The others flew up into the air. Grace stood for the longest time saying, "goodbye butterflies." As we ate dinner on the porch we saw one of Grace's butterflies fly by. It was amazing!

Dearest Grace,
What a fun-filled day with your very special Maddy and Poppy! Art, music, and science activities... (I know there had to be a book or two, as well...) I bet your baby brother can't wait to join in on all the fun!!Keep exploring sweet Grace.
Hugs From Vermont,
Donna xoxo

Wow, Grace, you have butterfly friends! They are beautiful! What an enchanting experience to watch them day after day, many days in hiding, then, poof, they are transformed into the painted ladies. I imagine that they won't travel far from their friend and we will be seeing other pictures on the blog of your winged friends.
Love you, nature girl,
Memere and Pepere

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
