Remember Bob??

Do you remember Bob? From this post? Our runaway caterpillar?
 "He" made his chrysalis on our classroom ceiling. Remember?
  Well, I never updated you on Bob or any of Bob's friends.
Here's Bob hanging from the ceiling.

Here's the "used" butterfly pavilion we tacked to the ceiling
 so Bob wouldn't fall to "his" death.
Sorry about the stain from the previous tenants.
Bob is in there, though.

This is not Bob.
This is one of Bob's friends bothering the chrysalis next door.

This is when we took our butterflies outside to set them free.
 Take a look at the sweetie in the jeans and pink cowboy boots. She loved this!

Here is a close-up of our butterfly friends. Beautiful!

Our sweet pink cowboy boots friend is talking to them through the side.
SO precious! I will miss that girl so!!

 And here is the star-"Bob" who turned out to be a "Molly."

Did you know male Monarch butterflies have black spots on the inside of their wings? These dots send out the pheromones to attract mates.
Bob did not have spots! She was actually called Molly, Skylar Laine, Marley, Shirley, and from one "hip" kiddo-Bob Marley! 

And if you can see this little speck in the air-
that's Bob-Marley flying to freedom!

Happy Memorial Day!


  1. Oh my gosh this is so funny! I love how you tacked the butterfly pavillion to the ceiling lol. I'm glad it all worked out with the butterflies. I bet the kids enjoyed every minute of it! :)
