We went without the big girls. We knew they were where they needed to be. We had a great time but didn't get very far at all before we found a spot we liked and sat down to eat. The little girls waded and John and Corrine climbed trees. We ended the outing with cookies and petting a dog with one blue eye and one brown eye. It was a very nice picnic.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
