If you read my previous blog entry, you know that we just got back from an Orlando/St. Augustine vacation (Note to self...take an actual vacation to St. Augustine and not just a two-hour visit. There's so much to do and see. The history is amazing.). When we got home, we 1. unpacked the car, 2. started the laundry and
3. fed and gave water to all our animals. As I looked into the babyfood jar and saw our Monarch caterpillar, I couldn't believe how BIG he grew! He grew more than five times his size in just 4 days! I had to take a picture. He also is outgrowing his babyfood jar, so we gave him a new home in a little bug cage we had in the garage. We'll continue to fill it with a little water and Milkweed leaves until he decides to form a chrysalis. Avonlea is so interested in this experiment we're doing with him. I feel like he almost needs a name...any suggestions?
