So, we took some beautiful Easter pictures last Sunday, which you can see here.

But the big word around our house lately is, "CATERPILLAR!!!!"  The trees have been raining Eastern Tent Caterpillars for the past several days.  These critters turn into rather unexciting-looking moths, but for the time being, they have provided hours of entertainment for the children.  Literally.  Hours.  They have caterpillar races, compare and contrast their different "pets," etc.  So, as a homeschool project, we have collected several of these little guys and set them up in a terrarium to observe until they form a cocoon and complete their transformation.   This is on Charlotte Mason's list of things that all 6 year old children should do, so I guess we're on track. :)
