About a week and a half ago we finally let the butterflies go. Logan really didn't want to so we told him they had to fly away to find their families. He still asks about them everyday. My sister who bought them for him said they have a lot of different bugs you can "grow". We are thinking of maybe doing the praying mantis. We'll see. It still all creeps me out. But here are some pictures of us letting the butterflies go.
