Meet Zoe

Two weeks ago the girls found this caterpillar outside.  We decided to capture it and put it in an old applesauce jar.  We are waiting to see if it will turn into a butterfly (or moth)!  When I taught school each child would have one that we would watch and journal and wait until they turned into beautiful Monarchs.  That was only 5 years ago and I can't remember what to do--ha!  Anyway, Zoe gets lots of attention around our house and if nothing else happens the girls have had a lot of fun watching her eat tiny holes in the leaves and crawl around and around in the jar, and, oh yeah, go to the bathroom!  I will keep y'all updated!  Let me know if you have any advice for Zoe!

Sorry. I'm no help but looks like fun. Honey

Oh forgot to mention that the girls found another one in the yard last night. "We" decided Zoe doesn't need a brother or sister so we left her outside.
