"I am going to name her Polka-Dot..."

...because she is pretty and has polka dots all over her. That's a good idea, don't you think?!"

Aiden found a new friend on our walk home from school today. Surprisingly, it climbed right onto her hand and let her bring it home. Also surprisingly, it hung out with us for over an hour...even while the girls excitedly passed it back and forth between one another. Even more surprising, was how soft and gentle the girls were while handle the fragile little insect. Aiden wanted to keep it as a pet, she even went and got a larger tupperware container and filled it with leaves and flowers and such, but once the damp fog lifted the butterfly decided to fly onto other adventures.

 By far, this was the coolest butterfly experience any of us have ever had.
