I almost did not post this, I was disappointed about loosing all the picture of the butterflies we watch grow and then released. God's Creation is so perfect, it was a true blessing to see it unfold in the life cycle of a butterfly.
So in the aim of documenting everything we do in our homeschool adventure, I am posting pictures I took from our bulletin board.
We ordered butterflies from Insect Lore. Only two of the 5 caterpillars became butterflies and one emerged from the cocoon with a broken wing. I tried to fix the wing using a youtube video with no success. Therefore, this butterfly stayed with us until we buried him. It was a great experience for my Beloveds because the butterfly wanted to be held and seemed to like the attention. The other one we released and flew away before I was even able to take a picture. Insect Lore guarantees more butterflies, but I didn't bother asking for new caterpillars because it may have been our fault and the weather was getting too cold.

This is part of our mini unit studies as we go through the alphabet for our ABC of the Quran adventure. Letter B is represented by Boat, Ball, Button, Butterfly, Ballerina, Bridge, Brain & the Quran B is for Bird which tells the story of how God showed Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) His Power by using birds.
