On a much lighter note (than my recent posts), I'm so glad it's Friday, and here a just a few highlights (favorites!) from this week:
Three painted lady butterflies emerged from the chrysalides today, and so far we haven't killed any of them (even though I traumatized everyone by dropping one while its wings were still wet). The last time we had more than one (a few years ago), they quickly laid more eggs and we were able to observe the complete metamorphosis. Anyone know how you tell the gender of a butterfly?
Hilarious Friday lunch. Okay, it's not exactly gourmet, but the kids thought it hilarious when I put these on their plates. It actually took them a little while to figure out how I got the spaghetti through the turkey kielbasa. And they all gobbled it up!
This isn't really just a Friday favorite, but something that has delighted me since we started this school year. I'm so glad that these two are best friends. They couldn't be more different, but enjoy each other so much.
They have less schoolwork to do than Sweet Pea and Tiger, so they have plenty of time for fun.
Can you tell which one can be a bit ornery?
