Creation is springing into action here and so are my kids. Upon noticing several butterflies twirling around her head, Molly exclaimed that there were thousands of them. She was right! They covered trees and fluttered all around us. She then made it her mission to capture at least one. Molly kept at it for a very long time--unsuccessful and yet, quite satisfied in the joy of the attempt.
And then, of course, in true homeschool style, this momma printed off a butterfly lapbook since I had discovered a passion in my daughter.
And with much gratitude, my heart is springing too.
