So how did we end up with a pet chrysalis? I know you are dying to know! So last week I was picking some cherry tomatoes out of our garden and I noticed a caterpillar on my parsley. I was inspired so I snatched it up and made it a little home in a glass jar.
Of course I did not have any glass jars on hand so I had to open a pasta sauce. For the next few days we fed it and then poof, one morning we went to check on it was a chrysalis! We were so excited to see that the caterpillar was beginning the transformation process.
I immediately went to the library as the last time I learned about this I was in Mrs. Campbell's second grade class. So armed with books and chock full of information, Mickey is now the complete authority on the life cycle of butterflies!
