The 1B butterflies were released today! We headed to Washington Market Park and hung out near the community garden now full of flowers, shade, and strong, refreshing breezes. The spot really seemed perfect as a place for our little fluttery buddies to embark on their journey into the great outdoors, beyond BMS. It was funny - the butterflies needed some convincing to leave their (laundry hamper) home - could they have wanted to stay at BMS with us?! Beacause of this, the kiddos got a nice long, close-up look at these guys before saying, "farewell friends!" We also had watermelon, guzzeled water, and ran around. A lot.
