I mentioned it yesterday: Fall is coming! It will be here before we know it. I plan to enjoy the little bit of summer left. Today, I let the kids take me out to learn in the yard. How could I say no?
My husband found this caterpillar in our yard a few days ago. The kids are having a blast watching it grow. We decided to look for more.
The kids went out with their nets but were not able to find more caterpillars. Instead, we found other garden friends: a moth and a slog.
We will continue to watch our caterpillar grow. It eats about a milkweed leaf or two per day!
