I most definitely have butterflies on my mind. On Saturday we celebrated a beautiful day near the lake at The Monarch Festival with lots of friends from school. It has been such a wonderful yearly event that my boys count on it each year.
The Heart of the Beast puppet theater was a new and delightful addition to the festival this year! Don't you just love the puppet show emerging from the suitcases?!
And we always enjoy the new crafts...masks and wet-felted caterpillars were fun.
Also, over the weekend we took care of Julen's first grade class caterpillars. It was so much fun I think I gazed at them several hours each day. I didn't realize how they can mess up that cage in a hurry!! I learned quite quickly that caterpillars are like babies...all they do it eat and poop.
Happy Monday Friends!! xx
