Lillyana has been learning about butterflies at preschool this week. Every evenings conversation has been about cocoons and chrysalis. They even wrapped a classmate up in toilet paper so it was like he was in a cocoon. I was also informed that butterflies eat with their feet.
She has been waiting patiently in the yard, between rain storms, to catch one of the many that have been around. Finally one landed, a beautiful yellow monarch.
Someone once told me that butterflies are the souls of people who have passed away coming back to check on us. If that's true, we have had a lot of company lately.
