Day 86. Caterpillar.

This is the furry, little friend who greeted us this morning.  He was just casually hanging out on the side of the garage door.

My youngest son was so excited!  He is studying caterpillars in his class, so he asked if we could take our friend to school today.  I obliged, as long as we could bring him home at the end of the day, and put him back in the environment he belongs!  :)

The only container we could find was the empty English muffin box on the counter from this morning's breakfast.  Hey, it worked!

I had to get a few snapshots before we let him go free.  If his colors are this beautiful as a caterpillar, I wonder what kind of butterfly he'll be!

My son named him "Green Leaf."

We put him in the plants underneath our tree.  I thought it was a little nicer than his garage home.  He even  had some raindrops to drink from.  :)

He was telling us goodbye, and thanked us for the fun day.

We told him it was our pleasure, and my son gave him one last "pet" goodbye.

  1. You guys are goofy, but I DO think everything should be named, or I would have lost my mind trying to keep on tract of five kids toys. Tell Greenleaf good morning for me tomorrow, if he is still around that is. Don't you wonder how little things like that cover so much ground.
