Our New Pet

We have a new pet caterpillar!  Sydney named it Millie.  Actually the picture above is the first one we had, which died within 24 hours of being home so we now have a new Millie.  A lady came to the school and taught the kids all about caterpillars and butterflies and we had the option to buy a kit.  So we are raising a caterpillar who will hopefully turn into a beautiful butterfly!  We will keep you posted. 
I really hope this works.  I have memories as a kid of collecting caterpillars that lived on milk weed and we would keep them until they formed a cocoon and then watched them hatch.

  1. Where's the caterpillar? I don't see anything.
    What kind of butterfly will it hatch into?
