Butterfly Release

So, it’s no surprise to anyone who knows me that I am moved and awed by nature.  Just part of my crazy.  I am really happy to say that it seems as though both of my kiddos are the same way.  VICTORY!

This little friend came home with abi from school one day:

(oops – thought I had a picture of the chrysalis…imagine a chrysalis image here!)

Anyhow – a chrysalis came home from school – then traveled to Fort Worth (which was funny b/c that was a HOT day, but I wasn’t going to travel home first to drop off our little friend – so they had to brave it in the car with cracked windows – fingers crossed!).  With the Fort Worth experience, I didn’t know what to expect…I didn't want to build the whole thing up in case the heat was too much for our little butterfly.

BUT…one morning we woke up – and this is what we saw!

SO COOL!  We were all pumped!!  (Probably more than what is normal…but as stated earlier…we don’t really fall into the normal in this category!)

After school, we swung by the nursery and grabbed some butterfly-lovin’ plants - because we wanted our yard to be a haven for “abi the butterfly” (guess who named her?!) – and we were set for her release…



And she just needed a bit of coaxing  /we weren’t going to let Abi not touch (on her legs) her special butterfly!
