I just love the renewed sense of life that one has when the snow all disappears and new life starts popping up all around us...
I'm learning to garden, little by little...and absolutely loving it...
I don't do food (yet) unless you count an occasional pumpkin -
but oh how I love the flowers ~ for with the flowers, come the butterflies. We looove our butterflies...and we even put special treats out for them...see how we kept them happy last year??
The kids get just as excited as I do about our butterfly friends...they are soo beautiful to look at...
So, you can imagine how awesome I thought these butterfly kits were that we saw on tv, from a pretty neat company called Insect Lore. H asked me a few times if we could get that...and I'll admit...I was thinking - that cannot be for real...can it?
So...I thought I'd find out for myself by contacting the company.
Not five days later...I came home to a package on my doorstep, courtesy of Insect Lore. I'd be lying if I told you that I wasn't as excited about this as my kids are! ok, truth be told, I might even be more excited...
In said package? An awesome poster showing the life cycle of a Painted Lady Butterfly - which is already hanging on D's bedroom wall per his insistence,
Lifecycle Stages Figures that the kids are absolutely fighting over -
and...get this you guys...LIVE BUTTERFLY LARVAE!
I am sooo. beyond. excited.
We have this cup with little teeny tiny larvae in it and we are having soo much fun watching them hang out and eat...
What an amazing experience to be able to watch this life cycle transpire right before our eyes!
Thanks to Kurt and the kind folks at Insect Lore - my kids are enjoying this experience, and not only that -
one of my readers also has the opportunity to win
the VERY. SAME. PRIZE PACKAGE! EEK!
That's right folks! Kurt at Insect Lore has offered to ship the same great things to one of you awesome readers...

These words are my own. I was not compensated to talk about the Butterfly Kit, however my family was given the above mentioned items to review in exchange for my honest feedback/opinion.
