Patpittars

April 23, 2009

co-op this afternoon was filled with the excitement of caterpillars. Katie and Michael both loved searching for them and collecting them in the caterpillar tupperware. I learned that the nest high up in the tree that looked like an obnoxiously spun spider web was really a nest of caterpillars. In fact, the top of the tree had been stripped of its leaves. Amazing. 100s of caterpillars in the trees meant an abundance in the grass and yard below. The kids were thrilled!! One of the 4-year-olds “taught” Michael the rules for picking up caterpillars. The yard had suddenly “come alive” with adventures. I was impressed that Michael managed without me (I’m a bit of an insect phobic) actually having to touch one or several for that matter. I did have to teach Michael, however, how to stop the caterpillar from actually climbing up his face (after managing to climb the length of his arm and up his shoulder and neck. YIKES. I will be forever grateful that Michael responded quickly and I didn’t have to intervene. God knows just what I need! HA!

Edit: Apparently they are tent nest caterpillars. More HERE or HERE for pictures.
