Hip, Hip Hooray!

So...my test scores arrived, and I passed my Recertification Board Exams.  Hooray! 

This afternoon we discovered that the last of our Black Swallowtails changed from a chrysalis to a  butterfly.  We found 2 little caterpillars on the dill in our garden about 6 weeks ago, and fed them a steady diet of Queen Anne's Lace and Parsley until they became huge and fat.  Not long after the last one changed to a chrysalis, we discovered another itty bitty teeny weeny little caterpillar on the greenery in our butterfly habitat, and then another a week or so later!

We were lucky enough to have 4 lovely butterflies emerge, but I only have pictures of the last two.

Tomorrow is J's Picture Day, so we have chosen an outfit.  (Shhh...don't tell anyone, but I found this dress at the thrift store last week!!)

L was doing cartwheels at J's soccer practice last week, slipped and landed HARD on her hip.  She has been complaining of pain ever since, so we got X-Rays on Saturday.  Finally found out today that they are ok...guess she just bruised herself and/or pulled a muscle.  At least we don't have 2 girls with broken bones to treat!

It's all good news for a Monday.  Hope yours is going well too!
