Chrysalis

My kiddos and I have been watching the caterpillars grow for about a week now, they are almost four to six times bigger than when we got them. We bought them through the Education Station in St. Albert. Each morning my son has been running downstairs and telling me about their growth. His excitement has been so contagious and our whole family is in love with watching these critters grow and change. This morning the first one formed his little chrysalis which means in about two days we will be setting up their habitat so we can transfer them there where they will then develop into butterflies. Once they are strong enough and ready we will be releasing them which of course I will have to doll my babies up and we will have to take some magical photos of their release. I am so excited!!!  *Please excuse the image quality, these are just cell phone images*image1image2
