Happy Earth Day


Happy Earth Day!
We celebrated with Homeschool Day at the Butterfly Conservatory.
Kirsten brought us out to the galleries for group learning, before heading in to visit the butterflies.

Hands-On with Special Guests

Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madagascar_hissing_cockroach, Malaysian Katydids and some seriously big centipedes were brought out for introductions.


O likes to spend her time under the waterfall look-out.
She sat in the bars like the local monkey and spotted a turtle sunning close-by.




Then O started calling out to the turtle, in hopes to get his attention....
...and though Baby C joined in...

...said turtle was not biting. He was happy having a meditative rock moment.
Can you blame him?


Baby C was eager to pet the Katydid, which is a first for her. She normally goes running in the opposite direction of all things that move. She might have thought it was a leaf. I was convinced!

She insists on trying to kiss the butterflies, as she knows to abide by conservatory hands-off rules.
