The kids were very excited to see one of our butterflies had emerged after 10 days of waiting and watching. Susie tried coaxing her out to no avail. We eventually took the bottle into the garden and the butterfly took her first flight. She must be patriotic because she flew straight to our flag. =) She eventually took up temporary residence in our blue spruce tree. We watched her sun herself, drying out her wings for about an hour and a half before we had to leave for a t-ball game. She was gone when we returned. We still have one more butterfly set to emerge tomorrow possibly. What a wonderful experience for all of us this has been!

Yesterday everything uploaded so dark and today everything looks too bright. I guess I'll have to do some investigating. =) Anyone else having trouble on blogger or flickr?
