Mitchell "the bug man" Morrell caught another critter. This time he found a wooly bear caterpillar, affectionately named Wooly, what else? I think there were a few tears about leaving him outside for the night so i let him bring him in...but that turned into wanting to take it out of the container and hold him and before i knew it he was crawling all over the table.
we got out the magnifying glass for further investigation and the kids loved it. It appeared that Wooly even wanted to do some school with us.
We now are raising this wooly bear as our own...taking care of him while he hibernates for the winter.... and in the spring he will turn into a Isabella Tiger Moth. Hopefully he makes it. Mitch really desperately wants to take him out and shake him, i mean hold him.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
