Our Monarch Butterflies

So at first we received this little jar in the mail and watched our caterpillars grow
and turn into cocoons

when they were ready we took them out and hung them in the special butterfly house/net.

 At first only one showed up and my kids were truly amazed.

The next day we welcomed the entire family.

Today we decided to let them go so they could spread their wings and fly 

It was so wonderful to see them fly away and also bring joy to my kids 

what a great memory.

We hope they will stick around a bit so we can watch them a little more...
