A chrysalis

On the way to dinner last night, we were talking about the caterpillar that we found on our cilantro plant. After a funny conversation about all caterpillars turning into butterflies and a long story that Genna told us from a book they read at school in German, I asked Hannah how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. She shocks my mother by describing not only the process, but also the chrysalis that the caterpillar forms. My mom said she didn't even know it was called a chrysalis. Hannah learned all that from the previously mentioned show, Peep and the Big Wide World. She absorbs things from TV, books, and stories like a sponge. All the more reason to be very careful what she sees and reads!

I just found your blog and was intriged by the title.
We are a family of 13 and have only been Catholic for nearly 3 years. We have 11 children and have diffulty finding a whole pew to our selves and so consequently have the very first one (which no one want). When our 10 year old was writing out some of her favourite things the other night she said one of them was getting our pew in Mass.

I have enjoyed starting to look at your blog. Out of time tonight but I will be coming back.
God Bless
