Bye-Bye Butterflies

Each year my mom gives the kids a butterfly garden.  We send away for the caterpillars and watch them crawl around, and then eventually turn into cocoons.  We place them inside the butterfly garden and then hopefully get to catch one of them emerging from the cocoon as a beautiful butterfly!

The kids love watching the evolution from caterpillar to butterfly.  One early morning it was time to let our beautiful butterflies go.

They each got to hold one and then release them into the sky.


Such a fun project!  Bye-bye butterflies!

Sacred Heart 100th Anniversary

This weekend we were proud to participate in the 100th anniversary celebration of our parish, Sacred Heart!

Devon’s family came out for the festivities, with the awesome race car and the dwarfism awareness booth!


Poppy helped to get the crowd warmed up for our headlining act, Hair of the Dog!


Grace and our next-door neighbor, Elizabeth


Dancing fools!


Seamus’ Tae Kwon Do school did an amazing demonstration


And Grace’s Irish dance school put on a beautiful performance!


With Hair of the Dog playing Irish music, Grace couldn’t resist doing a little dancing!


Seamus worked hard spreading dwarfism awareness!



And even Southpaw, our favorite mascot, stopped by for the fun!


It was a great day, and we were so happy to celebrate the church and school that we love!  Here’s to another 100 years!
