Owen got a grow-your-own-butterflies kit for Christmas last year. You have to have several weeks in a row at home to take care of the butterflies, so since this summer was pretty quiet, we finally ordered them. It was fun. Owen made a whole butterfly book about all the observations he made over the weeks. We had a great time watching them grow and finally releasing them!

|Nora loved watching the butterflies but if any of them made any sudden moves, she got pretty nervous.|
