M is for Metamorphosis

We had a wonderful time learning about metamorphosis last week. We ordered a habitat from Amazon & 5 free caterpillars from insectlore.com (a coupon code was included with the habitat purchase). Unfortunately, ants got to our caterpillars & killed 4 of them so we only got to witness one transform into a butterfly, but we are thankful that one survived!

We feed our butterfly some fruit and sprinkled some sugar water on fresh flowers & after a day of observing her, we set her free.


Here are some worksheets that we used – Label Butterfly Cycle & Butterfly Life Cycle

Puzzle from – Amazon

Weekly Memo Pad

I like being organized because it keeps me sane, so I’m always trying different things to keep me out of the loony bin. I’ve created a weekly agenda memo pad with a checklist of tasks for the week, appointments, dinners, and health & fitness goals. If you like that sorta stuff, print out the free template and make a memo pad for yourself!

You can find a tutorial on making memo pads over at ohmyhandmade!

Spring Camping

We spent a couple of days camping at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point.






We slept in our new camper “Lucy” – which we loved! She’s a Retro Riverside RV & I wish I got more pictures of her, but I will post pics of her soon!







Happy camping, friends!

New Eyewear

Time for new glasses & we have fallen in love with Jonas Paul Eyewear

They send you a FREE at home try-on kit which includes 6 different frames to try!

These were Ellie’s top picks…


She’s still thinking about which one she wants. The company gives you 7 days to decide & then the kit needs to be sent back.

I’ll let you know which one she picks…. :)

The Wizard of OZ booklet

Every night, we read a chapter from “The Wizard of OZ” & we finally finished it last week. The girls absolutely adored it! I created this booklet to go along with it. I usually make packets but I’ve found that booklets save lots of paper (woo hoo!) & I just like this style better. ;)
