They decided that I needed to get wet too, so they attacked me with the hose! It was COLD!
When we got home, my kids wanted to eat some more! Not sure why, they ate a lot with Grandpa. So we made Beaver’s Tails. Adrian decided he wanted an elephant instead of a beaver’s tail.
If you want to know what Beaver’s tails are, check out Andrea’s recipe for them!
This morning we watched four Monarchs emerge from their chrysalises.Â It is so amazing seeing how God created them.Â We have enjoyed watching their transformation from egg to butterfly many times, but we still ignore everything to watch them form chrysalises and emerge as butterflies.Â My God is so very good!
Daddy is out of town right now.Â Everyday he calls and we talk.Â Tonight, when it was Adrian’s turn, he was all ready for his important conversation.Â Not only did heÂ have on these wonderful glasses, he changed his voice!
Hoping that Allan can find a really good English resturant that has excellent fish and chips–served in paper!–for dinner tonight.
It was so neat seeing Adrian ask to have the butterfly on his nose today. He was watching Audrey play with their newest butterfly and he decided to try it himself.Â The cool thing is, last year he would hold the butterflies, but he was very timid about it and would get upset if we did not remove them quickly enough.
This year, Oma is giving us most of our managerie. There is construction down our road and it seems to have destroyed the Monarchs habitat.Â Out of the thirty something caterpillers we have, only two have been from our road. The remaining are from Oma’s three plants!
Yesterday, Pastor was talking about taking time to see God.Â He does so much and his evidence is all around us. I love watching the caterpillers grow and change. Observing them change from a caterpillar to a chrysalis is cool.Â But watching them emerge from their chrysalis is better.
Only God can change a tiny egg into a beautiful butterfly!
Once upon a time, there was a kid named Momma. She was walking through the woods. She found a flower. Then she was hiking through the woods again and found another flower. Then she was hiking through the woods again and she found another flower. Then you were hiking through the woods again and you found another flower. And that is all. You were done.
I asked him to signÂ his name and he said there was room on the front.Â I am glad that I rescued the picture and got him to write on the back. He drew Daddy a beautiful picture too, and then signed his name in blue crayon right across the middle of the picture!
