BUGS!!

We have been up to our thoraxes (thoraxi?) in insects lately. Aiden's ants arrived in the mail! YAY! These things were everywhere! We had to put the test tube they arrived in into the refrigerator so they would be calm when we transferred. But then they woke up and ESCAPED! I think we have it under control now, but I had 3 rogue ants that were lost.
This crazy looking guy showed up on our back door last weekend.  
 Then he did this...
 And now it looks like this. It has been 10 days. I hope we get to see the butterfly!! Emma said " Mom, its probably dead." Full of sunshine, that girl. ;)
 And last but not least, Emma's ladybug larve! This has been really interesting. I had no idea they looked like that at first. :) 
It has been a great learning experience!!
