I have already posted about this on the preschool blog, but boy did we have fun learning about insects this month in preschool and our homeschool science. We have now watched and documented ladybugs grow from grub to beetle, butterflies grow from caterpillar to butterfly and praying mantis' hatch. Seriously, I guess the third time is the charm for hatching praying mantis'. Though... now just a couple days later the couple we saved have all killed each other... I'm sure I fed them plenty of fruit flies... Bummer that the preschoolers didn't get to see them.
