if you know...then you're way ahead of me. jake came home yesterday talking about caterpillars and butterflies and the "chrysalis" and how he wanted to make one for his "home-made" butterfly from school. (which he did and hung from his wall and watched his butterfly emerge)
since jake first began pre-k, i have been amazed at what they learn and even more so at what jake retains. he really amazes me.
at first i thought for sure he was saying the word wrong and maybe meaning to say cocoon or something like that. b thought the same thing but we decided we would research it first before we upset our 4 almost 5 year old. and sure enough, we were wrong, jake was right.
if you're interested, look up "chrysalis" on wikipedia. it's sort of like a cocoon and is something the butterfly hatches out of....who knew! as jake was talking very energetically about it (and woke up this morning doing the same) i tried to think back at when i became interested in science.....hmmmm, oh yeah......um, NEVER! so he's one step ahead of me and we've got plenty to go.
so proud of my jakey! although it pains my heart to watch him become more of a little man every day, it's exciting too. watch out world.....here he comes!
