Life's Daily Miracles
Some of you might've read an earlier post of mine that had a slideshow of some "parsley worm" caterpillars I discovered in my garden. Out of nine, I managed to save three of the caterpillars. They spun their chrysalids, and TODAY the first one emerged. A swallowtail! I will have to do more research on the exact name. But I felt so blessed to be an observant of this miracle that happens on a daily basis all over the world, but is just so incredible! Like the quote on our kindergarten website says: "There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly." That's why I feel my kindergarteners start out like little caterpillars, and emerge as butterflies!
