So we are learning all about lifecycles in science this quarter. We started with the lifecycle of the butterfly. Well I had this genius idea that I was going to go hunting for some milkweed plants (which I had no idea what a milkweed plant looked like or where they grew). I wanted to find a caterpillar to bring into my class to enhance the learning experience! I came home from school and told my hubs that we were going to go out hunting that evening. This is how the conversation went down:
Me: We are going to go hunting tonight.
Hubs: What are we hunting?
Me: Milkweed plants with caterpillars on them.
Hubs: Do you know what milkweed plants look like?
Hubs: Okay, do you know where they grow?
Hubs: Awesome, this should be fun.
Me: I KNOW!
So we did a little research before we went out and thought we had a good idea of where to go and what to look for. We spent the next 30 minutes looking at every milkweed plant that we could find and no success. I was starting to get bummed out. We drove all around our town looking in every place we could think. Finally the hubs asked if we could go home. With a saddened face I said yes. 5 minutes from our house we saw some milkweed plants on the side of the road. I begged for just one more try. The hubs climbed through some pretty tall weeds and searched a ton of milkweed and finally he found one! I was so excited!!
Here he is!
