Adventure Day Part One- Iowa Style!

Part One:  We surprised Alex and Justin with a trip to the Reiman Gardens butterfly exhibit.  It was fantastic! 
 We got a lot of great ideas for our caterpillars.  I also purchased a fantastic book (The Family Butterfly Book)that we'll use as a resource for working with the caterpillars and butterflies that we find.
 
 He was so patient and really, really, really wanted a butterfly to choose him to land on!



 A Luna moth-

 Alex was the one who, while being really excited about the subject matter, found it a bit alarming to have butterflies darting right towards her.  She was a bit overwhelmed by the activity, and preferred them not to land on her.
 What a special morning adventure!
