Grow & Release Program


We ordered a Butterfly farm. Spencer is fascinated with larvae-cocoon-butterfly science stuff, so we are going to create our own. We set the "tree" up and will order the larvae/caterpillars and food (milkweed plants). We get to feed them and watch them grow and transform. And just as they break out of their cocoons, we will release them on a beautiful spring day! Okay, that is *supposed* to be what happens-- let's see how close we can get to that....

this is amazing! I may have to check this out and see if they ship to an APO! I would love to do this with my kids; I doubt I'll have time before 1 June though to get the thing hatched and ready to pack it up!

That is so cool. I know another little boy that would enjoy that. We will, of course, expect pictures of the various stages of morphing!

I've been meaning to ask you about your nephew's name....is he a fourth? Is it prounced "eye vee"? I know, stupid questions. I'm just curious.
