Matthew had actually gotten two packages on 2 different days!
The first package was the fun net/cage and with it he got ladybugs.
Matthew and Daddy went outside and found some twigs and leaves and then sat on the deck and put the ladybugs in.
Let me back up just a little: Matthew loves the book called "The Grouchy Ladybug" by Eric Carle.
We have read it so many times that we can almost recite it and we can change words and Matthew will correct us. So Grammie and Papa bought him this fun kit. After Matthew opened the kit, he said very excitedly, "Just like my book"! Then his mood immediately changed. He was sad because his book was out at our new house and he wanted to match them. He still had fun helping Daddy though!
I love the concentration!
Then Matthew was off carrying his ladybugs around leaving Daddy sit on the deck!
The other package that he got was a painted lady butterfly. It is actually the eggs so we get to watch it become a caterpillar, a chrysalis and then the butterfly. We are really excited!
We have also been watching monarch caterpillars on the milk weed at our new house. The one caterpillar is getting really big and should form his chrysalis really soon!
