Frogs and Caterpillars
Keeping the kids busy while waiting for the baby to arrive isn't much fun. Each day goes by soooooo slow. Today I took the kids to a park to catch frogs. (it's free and they think I'm the worlds coolest mom) We were there for only 10-15 minutes when they came running up to me with a bunch of frogs. They had already caught 11 frogs! What was I thinking now we have 11 frogs to take home. (I'm sure they won't live long) Just like all the other pets in our house. When we came home our butterfly kit arrived. The kids get to watch the caterpillars eat their special food and see how fast they grow. Then they will see them hang upside down and shed their skins to form chrysalides. Last, they will discover how they complete their metamorphosis by emerging as beautiful adult butterflies. They are excited to have 11new frogs and 5 new caterpillars.
