Not sure how many butterflies Audrey released last night, but I think around 30. We decided to have some fun and see how many she could hold and release at one time. The Monarchs were ready to leave, but she could hold around 10 without help.
More butterflies soon! Listening to her, this is the best of the last few years.
Audrey was drawing on the window and I wanted to get a reflection of her. I liked the picture, but wanted it to pop just a little more. So I started experimenting with different ideas. Unfortunately, since I was just playing, I did not keep track of what exactly I was doing, and can not replicate it. Guess I have to experiment some more.
When Audrey was eleven, she taught her first butterfly class. When the class was over, they went outside and tried to catch butterflies with handmade nets made of pillowcases and dowels. There was a lot of yelling and giggling and everyone enjoyed themselves.
The butterflies are original artwork created by my kiddos when they were little.
I can not remember where we got so many lilacs from. But in 2016, someone shared a bunch of them with us. Because of cooler days and lots of rain, there is not many lilacs right now. Still hoping though…
