Then Areyna fell in love with moths.
These spring evenings have found us outside until bedtime laying in the driveway looking for constellations, flashlight wagon rides in the surrounding fields and catching moths. I think we were up to 9 moths at some point.

Did you know that an adult moth does not eat? Yeah, I didn't either. Once they come out of the cocoon they no longer have mouths but a straw-like tongue to get nutrients through mud-water and nectar.
After we learned the life cycle we drew our own! I let them choose how they wanted to create it:)
