... and out came a beautiful butterfly!

The butterflies have all emerged.  All nine of our chyrsalis' have emerged and become beautiful Painted Lady butterflies.  We continued to write in our butterfly journals.  Tomorrow we will be taking them to our butterfly house to let them go.  We will observe the butterflies in the house and use our skills of observation one more time to complete the life cycle.  The kids will be looking for little white eggs on the leaves of the plants.  It is so awesome how they were able to see the entire life cycle of a butterfly from start to finish.

Take a look at our beautiful butterflies:
