Here it is October and once again I’m behind on blogging. I just can’t even begin to explain how hard it is to keep up the current pace. I now am writing notes to myself of things to remember to tell about our little Lj.
Last week, I was so fortunate to get to leave during lunch and head to Lexi’s Preschool. I brought a big fat caterpillar with me, a green chrysalis, and one that was about to hatch. I also brought 5 Monarch butterflies. I wish I had been able to capture the excitement in Lexi when I walked in the door! She was so excited and ran over to give me a big hug. I was so proud of her as I watched her follow the teacher’s instructions. If only she were so obedient for us!
Once all the kids got settled, they made a line and walked outside to release the butterflies. A few of them were so newly hatched that they were not anxious to fly off so every child that wanted to got to hold a butterfly. Even Lexi held one for me. I was totally amazed at how well they did and really enjoyed my visit.
The next thing I will get to do with her is go on a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch. Of course I’ll be there with my camera. I can’t wait!
