Paige wanted butterflies for her birthday, and got this awesome kit with live caterpillars. You watch them form their chrysalis and then hatch into butterflies! We talked through each step with the girls, who loved checking it several times a day. We had to pry the pretend wings off of the girls when it was time to go to bed, and Anna is still upset that the caterpillars never taught her how to fly.
We also have been growing a mushroom farm! These things grow crazy fast. We soaked the spores on Saturday to activate them. It took a couple days to see anything, but these pictures are from the last four days.
Aren't they cool?! Paige told us she wants to be a scientist when she grows up. I'm kind of giddy at the idea.
