A Bug in the Works

Sheesh, I hate getting onto Blogger and finding that they have changed EVERYTHING to help me. Annoying. Of course I will get over it, but it has been a long day and I wasn't thinking I would have to navigate a new system.

Okay, I am done complaining. Let's talk about another bug. The butterfly.

I was leaving somewhere (back during Spring Break) and I saw a little butterfly just sitting there in the driveway. So, I yelled to Tyler that he should show it to the kids. Not only did he let them see it, but he took pictures to boot. (I should really learn to think like him.)

Here are all the girls gathered around the strange phenomenon.

Tyler moved it to a stick and each took a turn holding it. (Except Pearl—thank goodness.)

This particular butterfly must rely on camouflage because it is really good at it. See if you can find the butterfly?

Although one would wonder why it was in the driveway and not the woodchips to begin with? Well, butterflies are meant to be pretty...not smart. If you still can't find the butterfly, maybe this will help.

I love watching my children discover and explore, even if it is vicariously through pictures.

p.s. So far the new blogger layout does not seem much different. I guess I should not whine so much. Where do my kids get it?

I love it when something captures their attention. I prefer it to not be bugs, but a butterfly I could handle :)

I hated the new blogger layout at first, but it's actually way easier for me to post pictures with the new one. But it took a looong time for me to think positive things on it. :) That butterfly is dang good at hiding, I totes couldn't find it!
