May 1, Grateful for Nature
Yesterday our pet caterpillar (Caterpee) officially crawled out of his cocoon as a beautiful moth. We set him free with great excitement and anticipation just to watch him get snatched from the air by a mama robin who has been diligently feeding her nest full of babies all month. There were tears from our five year old, but we certainly learned a lot about the ways of nature in those fleeting moments. Later we went for a lake walk and saw a whole menagerie; turtles, frogs, great blue herons.
