Mr. Moth hatches!

All summer long Henry has been wanting to catch a caterpillar so that he can watch it form a cocoon.  We couldn’t find one at all.  FINALLY, on their first day of school, I found one in the backyard.  We built a home for it, and within 24 hours it made its cocoon.  We checked on it every day for almost two weeks and this morning it hatched!  Henry was a little disappointed that it was a pretty bland looking moth, and not a butterfly, but he was impressed enough to take the empty cocoon to school to show it off to his classmates!
