Watching the monarchs just never gets old.  When this one emerged from it's chrysalis all of the kids got to watch.  It's amazing to watch the butterfly pulse, emerge from the chrysalis, and continue to pulse in order to "grow" it's wings.  (I learned recently that their abdomens are full of a blood pool that they use to help their wings expand.)  So beautiful!  So glad we got to watch this one... the last one emerged while we were sleeping.  We have one more hanging, and I anticipate it will emerge sometime over the weekend or early next week.
