Zack: "Mommy I am so sad today."
Me: "Why are you sad?"
Zack: "We had to let the butterflies go to their new homes today."
Me: "Oh, well that is really a good thing, now they have a lot more room to fly around and play."
Zack: "I know that but I miss them already."
Every single day since they got the new butterfly garden in school, Zack has come home talking about them. Several times I was dragged into the classroom (against my will on some days) just to see the caterpillars, then it was to see the chrysalis, then to see the butterflies that had already came out of the chrysalis. He was fascinated with the whole thing. So I guess going to the butterfly farm last year was a good thing.
