The Puzzle Museum

It was a perfect day (hot, humid and rainy) for Mark and Grace to put together all their puzzles and give us a tour of their "puzzle museum."
Grace led the tour, which didn't require much walking because we could only fit by standing at one end of the "museum."(also known as the hallway)
She described each puzzle and who put it together.
As you know, a few days ago, our Monarch butterfly hatched so we were without nature in the house, so when Laura found this type of caterpillar on our maple tree we made it a nice little habitat. Laura identified it as a American Dagger Moth caterpillar
The picture below is not the one she caught though. I planned on taking its picture today, but when we woke up it had already spun its cocoon.

This family seems to be very good at raising and hatching insects.
We will keep you posted when this little guy hatches.

Mark also caught another Monarch caterpillar today and Grace found another egg. We are going to take these over to Grandpa's house so that he and Grandma can watch the transformation.

Grandma and Grandpa are gonna love watching the transformation! I know I would!

Great job, Grace and Mark, on the puzzle museum!
