Over the last week the kids have been feeding a caterpillar that they found in the garden (yet another great use for a mason jar). This morning I noticed that it had stopped eating and settled into a sleeping position. I loved the way his stripes came together when he scrunched up. As if he was asking the question Whooo (inhale hookah) Are Youuuu(as he exhales)?
Then he began to wriggle like mad, trying to get that old skin off. Those markings were so last season!
Finally, he assumed the position, all cocooned, which took all of two minutes. Now he is (and we are) patiently waiting to find out who he is going to be.
