Spring Brings Caterpillars!
Caterpillars are everywhere! Why do I know? Because my kids collect them. Everyday at school they find them on the playground and carefully sneak them home (takes talent--Hypatia got caught a couple of times already--she got in trouble, I guess you aren't allowed to bring caterpillers into the classroom). Then the kids get home and find more. They get all my rubbermaid containers and make little homes for them with dirt, sticks, grass and leaves. Then the caterpillars eventually die. I tell them to leave the poor little things alone, but they are so alluring to children. Wade is learning to hold them without squishing them. Sadly, many didn't survive the process.
