  1. Well that kit gave you a lot of bang for your buck! How wonderful to have this experience Esther – were the kids excited to watch the hatch?
    [I apologize – I had some comments to respond to by you and they went missing. I’ll hunt them down on your recent posts and catch up.]

    1. Until yesterday I thought all the chrysalis were dead. One was moving around and that one still didn’t hatch. Kids didn’t seem interested until now and they look at it as they pass by it. Ellis asks me to move it when she eats cause it ruins her appetite. geesh…high maintenance.
      No worries about responding! When you have the time; just happy you read and say hello.
      Have a great start to the new week and a 4 day work week. Take care and hugs!

      1. Funny that you end up liking the whole process more … laughing at Ellis thinking it ruins her appetite. Modern kids! You take care Esther and going to send you a link on the other comment momentarily. I heard about this today and it may be fun.

      2. She has a real dislike for bugs of any kind. Once she saw a cockroach and without warning she jumped off a counter screaming. We were more scared of what she did than a silly ‘ol cockroach. Both kids scream and duck for cover if a fly comes into the house. And when I shoo it off that it’s not a big deal, they think I’m heartless. What the heck!?!

      3. That’s funny – I do despise flies as I imagine where they’ve been. So far, no flies this Summer. I go in/out of the side door and am careful, but getting the mail from out front and feeding Two-Tone on the porch is when they come in.

      4. I agree with you about the flies. They could have been anywhere; I see some hovering around dog’s poop outside. We use a fly swatter or rolled up junk mail to stop the incessant buzzing at home. The worst is when they get really close to your face. eeek!

      5. My neighbor’s cat is on the prowl and guess where she does her business? My front garden so I am very careful to only get the mail in the morning when they are not out as much. I go out, drop peanuts for Two-Tone and grab the mail and close the door for that one minute to do so. I won’t order anything from Amazon or somewhere where I have a package to get … if it’s heavy or awkward and I have to carry it to the side door. Not in “fly season”.
